Had a problem with browser crashing on exit on a Packard Bell with XP SP2.Ã‚Â IE6 was fully patched up, and no other probs on the machine.
I was pulling my hair out with this problem, getting to the end of my tether.Ã‚Â
Then I noticed that the browser title bar said Packard Bell, not Windows Internet Explorer.
I unbranded the IE by stopping IE and running:
Bingo, problem solved for me.Ã‚Â Hope this helps someone some day.
You can use this to remove any pesky IE browser branding.
