    Want to get rid of Preview windows

    When I hover the mouse pointer over a program on the task bar, a small pop-up window opens that has the name of the program and an X (which allows me to close the program, though right-clicking is how I prefer to do it). I find these pop-up windows very annoying. Can I get rid of them?

    If there is no way to get rid of them, then there must be a parameter in the Registry which controls the delay before they open. If so, I would increase that delay considerably. I hope someone can help. Thank you.

    I just figured out that what I am talking about is the PREVIEW window. I am running Windows 7 in the Classic look, and I'm not getting any previews in that window, so it serves no purpose. I just want to get rid of it altogether.

    Okay, false alarm. I just figured out how to do it. I increased the mouse hover time (in the Registry) to such a high number (1000000, or 16.6 minutes) that the Preview windows will never show. Thanks all.
