Greetings, willef !

The notification bubbles are called tooltips.

http://www.flexbeta.net/forums/lofiversion/index.php/t4078.html
If you wish to disable the Windows XP Tool Tips:

1. Copy / Paste the following to a NoTT.reg file:

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]
"ShowInfoTip"=dword:00000000

2. Merge the NoTT.reg file with the registry or run regedit /s NoTT.reg.

3. The use must log off and on for this setting to take effect.

If the above does not remove the tooltips that you want, there are other suggestions in the link above.

Best wishes!

This also works


1) Open the Registry Editor
2) Navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop.
3) Double-click UserPreferencemask and change its value to 3E 00 00 00.
4) Close the Registry Editor and restart Windows.
