You cannot remove it from your system - it's one of Microsoft's permanent updates.

Good luck

It is an update which is "locked in" and cannot be removed. I think it was forced upon Microsoft by the EU Commission to offer this choice. I don't have MS Updates set to Automatic - they download but I choose what to install - having read about it I chose not to install it. Maybe you could do a "system restore" and then reinstall any that may have been removed during that process.

I let it make the offer and the closed it without making a choice . It is now a shortcut icon on my desktop in case I need it in future.

Lotvic's solution worked for me on my Vista machine, Disable it in "msconfig" startup tab, then shift delete the Icon from the desktop...gone!

Me same, I do updates Manually. So I did not load it

I think I have got rid of it.
Looking at the msconfig it shows the words computor browser with a tick to it & nothing else.Is this now correct and as the browserchoice gone?

No it will still be on your computer somewhere But it will no longer run at start up.

From what I have seen it gets installed as a "Run Once" option in the registry so if you allow it to load and go through the process but change nothing then close it out it should appear no more at startup
