Disable pop up message from system tray icons.

Hello,
     The issue is that when I start debugging my project (Visual Studio 2005, OS: Win XP), the internal web server (the ASP.NET Development Server) pops up a message announcing that it is there.  I want to disable that message.  I have tried right clicking on the start menu -> properties -> Taskbar -> Customize -> always hide.  But  a) the port keeps changing which makes the system think it's something new and I have to tell it to hide that one and b) for the current port it's using (4077), I have told it 4 times to always hide, but it still pops up.  Is there some property someplace I can set to default all icons to be silent, just present in the system tray?

I don't think so, but it would be cool to be proven wrong b-)

That applies to all balloon tips.  According to that article, "There is no way to disable balloon tips for specific programs only".

I believe the user is willing to silence all according to his last sentence...  I realize you cannot only silence one.

Or, maybe he's wanting to silence all of the icons for that particular program... it wasn't very clear.  You may be right.
