"If disabling TabletInputService doesn't work for you try the following :

Type ""gpedit.msc"" in the command line window and press enter.

Now, at the new window that opens, navigate to
User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Tablet PC > Cursor.

Now enable the Turn off pen feedback setting. Yes - you have to enable it to disable it. Then they'll disappear.

This may be of use to anyone using Visual Studio 2010 which seems to want to reenable the bubbles for some reason!"

"Just had this issue with my Wacom Bamboo.

Open Wacom Preferences
Go to Pen tab
Click Mapping button under the Tracking section
Deselect the check box at the bottom that says: Use Windows Ink"

I found the answer: go into Services, and stop and disable "Tablet PC Input Service", et voila :-)

The bubbles that appear around clicks (as well as the tooltips for Ctrl/Alt keys) is caused by the Flicks applet. Right click on Flicks in your tray to disable them.
