I have desktop pc with two keyboards usb and bluetooth. Also TOSHIBA Bluetooth Stack software, but in device manager: keyboard > hid keyboard device both using microsoft drivers. And I dont have any software installed for keyboards. Also bluetooth has separate system tray indications (it is also disabled) so its not that. I made some googling and found other fix it with Hkey_Local_Machine\Software\Widcomm\BTConfig\General KeyIndication set to 0, but I dont have it in registry. Acualy I dont have anywhere in registry KeyIndication. So any ideas how to disable it? Thanks

Hi,

You'll find that the messages are controlled by a piece of software that came pre-installed on your machine when you bought it. Try looking for a Hotkey managing app to see if the notifications can be disabled.

Where is no any software! I made clean install of windows 7 and didnt install any drivers. All came automatically. This is few years pc and original windows was xp. Now I am using win 7. So "came pre-installed" is not in this case

Windows has no such feature built in. Look at the software you have installed.

Do you have something called "quickset.exe" running in your task manager by chance?

Would you be able to scroll down and show the other half of the task manager.....it may give an idea of something that may be running in the background that could be causing this.

Hmmm....other than the bt software, I don't see anything that would give a clue about what is controlling the display of the message. I'm sure someone will have more ideas....I was just trying to look at the simple things first.
