To my knowledge, help balloons are not used in Windows 8 and later. So, it would be confusing, especially to a new user of Windows, to have this option on in that instance on Windows 8 and later. However, this results in the toasts not being read. For that, I recommend a change of the option name to reflect this variation.

H, I agree (quite trivial to implement, I’d say a new dev should do it).

I think we should possibly just name it "Report notifications" or similar, which covers both. The config option should not be renamed internally, though, so as to avoid breaking backwards compat.
