Disable Windows XP MSN Passport Registration Nagging
Can I stop Windows XP from bugging me about creating an MSN Passport?
Windows XP can drive you nuts with the idiotic Passport reminder balloon.
You can do what it wants you to do – register with MSN, or, if you don’t want to, you can easily disable it:
- Start Registry Editor (Regedit.exe).
- Locate the following key in the registry:
- On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following registry value:
Value Name: PassportBalloon Value Type: REG_BINARY Data: 0a (hexadecimal)
Note: 0a as in “zero a” not “oh a”…
- Close the registry editor.
