85. Remove ISP Branding From Your PC
Using your ISP's (Internet Service Provider) CD
to install your internet connection settings can
result in certain applications, notably Internet
Explorer, being branded with the name of your ISP.
Many people get annoyed that they have no control
over the branding that appears. Some simply want it
removed so that only the legend Internet Explorer
remains. After all this is 'your' computer we are
talking about, just because you pay your ISP for
your internet connection it doesn't give them the
right to plaster their name all over your PC.
So assuming you don't like the ISP branding here
