How to stop an annoying balloon appearing.

  Meshuga 09:02 30 Apr 05

When I click on the start button I get a balloon with a message telling me that it cannot display all the items I have added to the start menu and that I should eithe remove some items or reduce the size of the menu icons. I dont wish to remove any items from the start menu so how do I reduce the size of the menu icons without altering the size of the desktop icons please. OS is XP home sp2.

control panel/taskbar and start menu/start menu/customize. Set number of programs on start menu to zero.This stops the items accumulating when you open them but does not delete any you have permanently selected.
