JSI Tip 3638. How do I clear the 'Enable reminders' check box, on the 'Offline Files' tab, via the registry?

The NoReminders value name, a REG_DWORD data type, at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\NetCache or HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\NetCache, determines whether reminder balloons appear and users can't hide them (0), or whether reminder balloons are hidden and users can't display them (1).

NOTE: If NoReminders appears in both HKLM and HKCU, the entry in HKLM takes precedence.

NOTE: NoReminders stores the setting of the Disable reminder balloons Group Policy at User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Offline Files.
