Can anyone help?? I recently left BT broadband and joined Sky. Got evrything set up alright except every time I click on sky broadband icon it opens through BT Yahoo! I have tried to uninstall/delete Yahoo through control panel/add remove programs but it wont let me uninstall base components of Yahoo. What can I do to remove Yahoo and all its associated programs off my computer so I am only using sky? Thanks!
It's an irritation to have IE saying "IE provided by BT when you no longer use BT as your ISP; but that's all it is; it doesn't affect your use of Sky. I've just read MCE2K5's link - it seems that removing branding in IE7 is more complicated than in IE6; I'd be inclined to live with it. I lived with "...provided by Tiscali" years after I'd moved to a different ISP. However, if that's not the problem (you say "...sky broadband .... opens through BT Yahoo!" so I'm a bit unclear)it may simply be a matter of changing to a different web address. eg. a friend's ISP is Free-online but accessing his webmail involves a detour through Plusnet beause one now owns the other. But by noting and using the final URL that opens the Free-online site one can at least shorten the detour a little.
thee are the instructions that I found somewhere (this forum?) a long time ago: 1.Gaze upon your branded logo for the last time. 2.Close all browser windows. 3.Go to Start, choose Run, and type or paste "rundll32 iedkcs32.dll,Clear" without the quotes. 4. Hit Enter. 5.Open a browser window. Jump with joy as you gaze upon your default browser branding.
