However, one command into the run box to me is faster than opening preferences, policy editors, registry editors, or CP applets. The MSN IM client, upon Windows default installation, comes with pop-up balloons and an extraneous systray icon, while stifling efforts to close it by re-opening itself next boot or next time Outlook is opened. Deleting it causes it to re-appear next boot more often than not. It's just a bit of an annoyance.
I use TweakUI to get rid of the balloons. I could use Group Policy editor, but TweakUI has a much better UI and it doesn't have a really hard to find set of options, the options are right in front of you.
