Go to Start, choose Run, and type or paste "rundll32 iedkcs32.dll,Clear" without the quotes.
Then enter, should be gone.

I don't have Freeserve, but surely all you have to do is right-click on the icon, select properties, and choose a new icon from C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE - or are you talking about an icon that is not on the Desktop or Taskbar?

Hi Pesala, I dont have freeserve iether. I am not talking about icons, I am talking about the info on the top of the screen when Internet Explorer is opened ie. Microsoft Internet Explorer provided by freeserve. A mate of mine wants to remove the freeserve bit. I had already suggested uninstalling Internet Explorer through 'Add Remove Programs' and then re-installing I.E.6 from the PCA. disc but he doesn't want to uninstal. cheers, Bill

The command above entered into the Run box will do that billyliv.

Just a thought. I can't remember how it's done, but im sure one of the suggestions above will be correct.

By removing that information, I believe IE WONT work properly and it will effect your browsing?

rundll32 iedkcs32.dll,Clear

will remove the branding; it will not have any effect on browsing etc.

Note: the command is case-sensitive.
