Pop the balloons

Dislike the yellow 'speech balloon' notifications displayed by WinXP when printing, disconnecting USB devices, or breathing in a non-MS-approved way?  Of course you do.

It's possible to disable them with a straightforward registry hack, or via a download from IntelliAdmin.

Some of them, like 'you can safely remove hardware' and so forth, are actually quite useful. But as I tend to keep my desktop quite clean, having the Desktop Cleanup wizard popup is really annoying, or the 'Take a tour of Windows XP'. So I'd like something that kept the useful ones and got rid of the ones that don't.
