B.T.W. if you really want to change the background of your hint-window 
its best you do it system-wide in your theme. You could do it like this 
on Windows 7:

Right-click your desktop and choose Personalize.
At the bottom choose "Windows Color"
In  the next screen choose "Advanced appearance settings".

You get a screen like this:

Choose Tooltip and for Color1 choose the desired background color.
Apply and close all screens.

Now when in any program a tooltip (hint-window) popups its background 
will be your chosen color.
