Don't give up just yet; check if you copied the Reg command right. In this line

...Explorer\Advanced...

there mustn't be any spaces.

Run it from GuiRunOnce. That's before the first log on. You could do it from registering components (T-13) if you like.

Try it on your live system to see how it works. Change the 2 to a 1 and log off and then on again.

EDIT: OK I see where the problem may lie. I tried it on my live system and it didn't work unless I used CURRENT_USER. So use....

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

; Disable Start Menu Popping Up on First Boot
; Disable Click here to start balloon tip on first boot
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]
"StartMenuInit"=dword:00000002
"StartButtonBalloonTip"=dword:00000002


Though I do use LOCAL_MACHINE on my Windows setup and it works.


EDIT 2: I also noticed that StartMenuInit only works on the standard start menu. StartButtonBalloonTip only works on the classic start menu. In other words they don't both op up at the same time time no matter what. Come to think of it, it makes perfect sense! Why would you need both?
