Pointing finger problem.

When the arrow cursor changes to a pointing finger a drop down box explaining what you are pointing at appears. This often covers up information I need to read. Is there a way of disabling this "drop down box"? Windows XP.

In control panel go into folder options. Go to the view section and scroll to the bottom of the list. Untick the "Show pop-up descriptions for folder and desktop items".

Hope this is what your looking for.
