Suppress the Windows Tour Prompt in Windows XP


XP displays the Windows Tour balloon prompt the first 3
times you logon to XP. If you want to suppress the XP Tour, use the following XP
registry hack:

Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Tour

Name: RunCount

Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 0


Setting RunCount = 0 will disable the balloon prompt for all users. Although
the Tour will be disabled after 3 logons, you could use the following XP
registry hack to disable the Tour for a particular user:

Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER

Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Tour

Name: RunCount

Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 0
