Change the words at top of Internet Explorer browser window

When I was working in Hawaii, I had a lapse in judgment and installed the internet company’s CD when I was setting up my internet.  This resulted in me having “by Hawaiian Telcom” at the top of every browser window.

Uninstalling the software didn’t remove it, so I decided to look for a better answer.

I did a google search for “how do i remove “by Hawaiian telcom” from my browser”, and found this site: http://forums.techguy.org/malware-removal-hijackthis-logs/581290-solved-trojanspm-lx.html

It was actually referring to how to remove a trojan, but the user was a Hawaiian Telcom customer, and the log they posted had the dreaded “By Hawaiian Telcom” in their registry entries.

“R1 – HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Window Title = By Hawaiian Telcom”

A quick trip to regedit, and I have now eliminated this phrase from my machine!  I actually went down HKLM, as well as HKCU.  For more details on how to do this change, click after the jump!
