You showed an image with Microsoft Word, so it's somewhere in the settings. I use Open Office, so I cannot tell you the settings. I use Microsoft Word at work but I turned help off and hardley use the computer.
These people may ba able to help you. Sorry, it's a little out of my knowledge.

THis looks to be the right kind of thing - I'll try it tonight. Alleluiah! thanks very much jman!! and thanks to all who tried to help. Sorry if I wasn't very clear about the problem.
If this has not yet been solved, some people have resolved it by uninstalling Quickset, a Dell specific utility.
I have not confirmed if there is a way to disable the popup in Quickset without having to uninstall the whole program, but the uninstall does work.
You may want to poke around in Quickset setting before uninstalling it...

I had the opposite problem, in that I used to have the pop ups appear, but then they disappered. I had inadvertently removed the Dell Quickset program from my start up menu. Deliberately removing would seem to solve your problem.
If anyone did what I did, and wants to restore the status icons, just download the latest version of the Quickset program from www.support.dell.com
Hi - I have a Studio XPX 1645 and was SUFFERING from the same problem, it was driving me mad. I found a solution that works for studio xps laptops at the following thread and it works perfectly and does not effect any other programs or functions.
