Installing AOL installed my Internet Explorer 5.0. My IE title bar say "... provided by America Online". I don't use AOL and want to uninstall the AOL app, but keep the browser. Will it damage my IE?

Thanks.

You can uninstall it, as Telecom69 already said.

Shoud the AOL Window title remain, after uninstall, there are two ways of removing this kind of branding:

1) Go to Start/Run, and type Regedit.

Drill down to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
Highlight 'Main' and look for the value 'Window Title' in the right pane.
Hightlight it, and hit delete.
When you delete this value, "Microsoft Internet Explorer" becomes the default window title.

2) The 'miracle cure'... :D:

Close Internet Exoplorer and Outlook Express.

1. Press the Start button.
2. Press Run.
3. Paste in rundll32.exe iedkcs32.dll,Clear
(This is case sensitive, so better not type it manually)
4. Press OK.
5. Restart Internet Explorer.

This will remove Internet Explorer branding.

Good luck,

Welcome to TSG!
After uninstalling AOL if the branding is not removed from the IE top bar you can use this little trick to change it compliments of Tony.

Go to start\run and copy this string listed below and paste it in the run box and hit enter.

rundll32.exe iedkcs32.dll,Clear

Let us know how it turns out.
Dave

Edit: Spoke to soon Tony is here!
