Try to right click computer, click properties, then click on your WEI score after that click "Adjust Visual Effects", and try if you can find it there

Hmm that was exactly what i told u that i did But didn't helped. No option from the "Performance Options" will disbale the hover. Only if i disable the "Use visual styles on windows and buttons" but if i disable that windows goes to classic style,like windows 98 )

Mouse Hover Time - Change

You could try setting a very slow hover reaction time, but there will be penalties elsewhere.

Your only remaining set of options, at this time, is to hack system files.

There is, of course, the Hover Mouse.
