How do we remove balloon tips from vista home?

We followed your clear instructions, but it simply refuses to work on our pc - using Vista home version. Is there another way? I'm not that excitied about Vista anyway, and I don't want to have to get Vista pro!

Who needs these superfluous balloons that mean you can't even see what you're ypting anyway? Am I the only one being driven insane?

Here is how to disable balloon tips in windows vista.

Click start and go to run. Type gpedit.msc (this is used to open group policy) and press enter. Now open User configuration, then Administrative template after that start Manu and finally Taskbar.

Now choose remove balloon tips, right click with mouse and open properties.

Now in option enable it and click ok. Close the gpedit and reboot the system.

Congratulation you have disable your awful balloon tips in windows vista.

Gpedit.msc is not available in windows vista home and premium edition’s not to worry we can do the same from registry in windows vista home and premium edition.

Again go to run (windows key + R) and type regedit and press enter.

Expand registry to HKEY_CURRENT_USER >> SOFTWARE > Microsoft>> Windows > Current Version>> Explorer > Advanced.
Right click and create new Dword value and give name as EnableBalloonTips.
Give value as 0(zero)

Data protection (DEP ) Can I remove it I have protection without it.


Having DEP is a "good" thing -- your RAM holds "instructions" (such as 'add' or 'multiply') and it holds "data" ('1', 'cat', '2', 'dog').

DEP recognizes the difference between "instructions" and "data", and REFUSES to take a "data" value, and try to interpret as an "instruction". This "prevention" blocks some computer-viruses!

Adobe Photodeluxe 2.0 /VISTA


I just got Photo deluxe 2.0 to work on a new computer (bought Feb. 2010) with Windows 7, and I don’t even have a .setup file. This was a program that came with an HP years ago when they included a lot of software. I had simply dragged and dropped the program onto a CD. Since then I loaded and ran it on my XP without problem. Now with Windows 7 I got the ‘not enough RAM’ message and tried everything suggested on several blogs without luck. To fix the problem I right clicked on the .exe file and selected ‘properties’. Went to ‘compatibility’ then checked ‘run this program in compatibility mode for:’ and selected, ‘windows 98 / windows me’. Boy was I happy to see it up and running again. Hope this helps someone out there, this is a great program. I’ve used the newer versions and they are WAY too complicated for my usage.

Compatible games with vista


Never winter nights 2 works fine on Vista.

But if what I think is right, you don't have a very good videocard.
This might also be the problem with your error message.
