Windows XP: Sick of seeing Messenger balloon when you use Outlook Express?

Why are you using Outlook Express? No… really? Well, I’m not one that should be judging, so if you do use it, and you’re sick of Messenger balloon popping up everytime, here’s how to turn it off:

  • Open your registry and find the key below.
  • Create or edit the existing DWORD value named “Hide Messenger” and set the value to “2” to disable the popup.
  • Key:[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express]
  • Value Name: Hide Messenger
  • Data Type: REG_DWORD
  • Data:(2 = disabled)
