Remove Tour Prompt in Windows XP

Posted by mikejc in Windows

If you install XP on numerous boxes, you probably do not want to see the tour prompt on every one of them. This registry hack will prevent the tour option from appearing.


1. Click start -> RUN -> regedit.

2. Then locate

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Tour

3. Create a new value – REG_DWORD -> RunCount ->.

4. Put 0 as a value.

    Is there a way to edit the registry so that any user who logs in will not be bothered by the Tour Start program? This is for the current user only.

      Yes there is…
      Create a new key named “Tour” here
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionApplets
      and create a new DWORD name it “RunCount” and give it a value of “0”.

      Voila!
