Most of us don’t really like the balloon tips bugging us in the system tray. Luckily we can disable them, if you’re using Vista then have a look at the ‘Disable Vista Balloon Tips Tutorial’. And if you’re using the all new Windows 7 then have a look at the below tutorial:

Firstly, Go to Control Panel and from the System and Security section, select Review your computer’s status.

Now in the left menu, select Change Action Center settings.

Next, you should remove the tick marks from the notifications you don’t want to receive in the Security messages and Maintenance settings sections.

Once you’re done with it, click OK.

Voila! That’s it – no more annoying balloon tips in your system tray. To verify if it’s working or not simply disable your firewall or Antivirus program that you’re using.
