How can I stop the "Click here to begin" message?

A. A. There are 2 ways to accomplish this. If you have the TweakUI utility perform the following

  1. Start the TweakUI Control Panel Applet (Start - Settings - Control Panel - TweakUI)
  2. Click the Explorer Tab
  3. Deselect "Animated click here to begin"
  4. Click OK

If you don't have TweakUI you will need to edit the registry directly

  1. Start the registry editor (regedit.exe)
  2. Move to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
  3. Double click on NoStartBanner and change to 01 00 00 00
  4. Click OK
  5. Close the registry editor
