Tooltips sometimes don't disappear and it stays on top of everything. Clicking on the Show Desktop icon doesn't make it disappear either. I have to restart the computer for it to disappear, at least that's the only way I know how to do it.

Is there anyone here who knows how to make those tooltips disappear without having to restart the computer?

I'm running Windows XP Professional Version 2002 with SP3.

Have you read any of the links at http://www.google.com/#hl=en&sugexp=les%3B&gs_nf=1&gs_mss=tooltips%20rem&cp=15&gs_id=1i&xhr=t&q=tooltips+remain&pf=p&sclient=psy-ab&oq=tooltips+remain&gs_l=&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.&fp=577e53bc82978f0e&biw=1440&bih=699 ?

If such happened to me, I would disable tool tips...run chkdsk /r...after the system reboot, I would then re-enable.

http://www.windowsreference.com/general/how-to-enabledisable-tooltips-in-windows/ , bear in mind that the registry should be backed up before attempting any registry edit, no matter what it might be. A good tool for doing such is ERUNT Registry Backup Tool - http://www.snapfiles.com/get/erunt.html .

If this is a browser/Chrome issue, I suggest you look at links referencing such.
