remove tooltips when hovering over start button and pinned icons

hi is there a way to remover or at least a reg hack to remove tooltips over start button and pinned icons. ive already unchecked show pop-ups in the folder options and also set the show info registry entry to 0 but still hovering mouse over start button it shows the tooltip start and also explorer shows tooltip is there a way to remove just the taskbar tooltips or setting the time in the registry like to set it real high so i would never see them. vista was the same way tried everything to fix but still didn't work thanks
