What is Notifu?
Notifu, a free open source pop-up balloon utility Notifu is a tool that displays a yellow pop-up balloon in the system notification area, better known as the tray. It is free and open source, give it a try! Notifu uses the same API that Windows uses to show pop-up balloons. You see them when you add a device, such as a wireless network or a USB drive, or when certain system events occur, say, every second Tuesday of the month... Notifu displays a message. So in its simplest form, the message is the only required arguments. Use the /m switch
notifu /m "This is a simple Notifu message."

The first simple solution I've found after three hours of search. Pretty straight forward tool, but doesn't seem to be able to display old XP balloons and some other shortcomings, but does the job anyway. I wish for a solution like this, that has a small .exe that takes commandline args and leaves no trace when done. Although I'd be happy to find something that can be customized a little bit more.
