Wanadoo Browser GRIRRRRR!!!

In another thread I talked about my inability to connect to AOL through a Wanadoo Livebox Wireless router.

I've now gone back to my BT Voyager Modem and all is well, except for one small thing...

"Microsoft Internet Explorer provided by Wanadoo"

It isn't provided by wanadoo, it's provided by Microsoft, it's nothing to do with Wanadoo. How do I get rid of this legend from the top blue bar of my Browser please?

If you have spywareblaster on your PC you can change this in Tools - Misc IE settings

In Spybot S&D, advanced mode, Tools IE Tweaks and don`t forget to lock your hosts file on the same page.

Thanks Powerless, that did the trick, and just to be on the safe side I deleted all reference to Wanadoo in the registry at the same time.

Don't worry, I've poked about in the registry before and only ever had 1 disaster.
