    Hi, I am using WXP.
    How can I prevent the dialog box's that sometimes appear from the task bar with the connection notification and "new found hardware". With the latter I have found the "Add Hardware" icon in the control panel, but it has no properties or menu. Can someone out there help.

    Cheers Graeme.

    Hello OTOE1, It is scanner hardware that I can only seem to use out of the printer usb port. The scanner works ok but when I disconnect from the port the hardware wizard thinks there is a problem. The dialog box's are annoying.

    Download Tweak UI.

    In Tweak> taskbar and startmenu> uncheck Enable balloon tips and click ok.
