This ones a long explanation for a small problem! :)
I got a new laptop recently and connected to the Interent from home for the first time this weekend.
I dont have a dialup account, so i used my landlords account (with their permission).
The problem was that they didnt know the dial up phone number, as their PC had fried a couple of weeks ago and it hasnt been fixed yet.
So, after a few random number attempts, I decided to install a free trial CD for another ISP, go to the original ISPīs website and get the dialup number.
All done and dusted fine, am now able to dialup using my landlords account.
But, the trial CD has left its mark on my laptop in the form of "provided by <company name> <phone number>" on the title bar.
So it now reads <page title><microsoft internet explorer><excessive crap>.
Does anyone know how i can remove this?
The short answer is to fire up RegEdit, search for "provided by <company name>", and either modify the text or delete the key that you find containing that value and it's associated customizations. It is a custom key, and if it's not present, Explorer will revert to the default text of "Microsoft Internet Explorer."
If you're not comfortable editing your registry, then don't do it! - And always make a registry backup before editing it!
