When I hover mouse pointer over an item it shows what is there before I click to open item up. How can I stop this.

Why would you want to do that - is it such a problem ? I suspect it is built into the O.S.
I know of no way to disable this feature - but maybe someone else will put me right on this. (I don't want to do it myself - but I would be interested if/how it can be done)

In Windows Vista and 7 whenever you hover your mouse cursor over a Desktop icon, it shows a cool transparent rectangle over the icon. This kind of behavior is not found in XP but many XP users want this awesome effect in their OS. click here

So as I said above Jim it is a feature of Vista and I know no way of turning it off.
