If you don not use supanet then one or both of these should help click here and click here if you are using supanet then they will probably cripple it .

No need to download anything. Just do a registry search for "provided by (whatever)" and change it.

Removing the title bar branding from Outlook Express involves editing the Registry, so take whatever backup precautions you deem necessary before you start.

Then click Start, Run, type Regedit and hit Enter.

Open in turn the following Registry folders: Hkey_Current_User, Identities, {id-number}, Software, Microsoft, Outlook Express.

Select the folder 5.0 (or whatever version of Outlook Express you are running), then look in the righthand pane for a value named WindowTitle.

You can modify the text held in this value (double-click to edit it) or just delete it. If more than one id-number appears in your Registry, you may need to repeat the exercise for each one.

If you have SpywareBlaster and wish to occasionally change the IE title bar's wording, just look under Tools in the panel and then the miscellaneous IE tab. Key in what you want to appear - I have my name on show, purely for vanity reasons you understand.
