    six-h Flightless Bird

    I'm steaming bl**dy mad.
    I tried every way possible to avoid having this piece of Euro dog mess on my
    PC (Vista Ultimate) but lo and behold the blessed thing has appeared at the
    next boot.
    I've tried taking ownership of the file but apparently I need God's
    permission to do that...or anything else it seems!
    Out of pique, I shift deleted the desktop icon, which gave me some
    satisfaction, but HOW do I disable the blasted thing so that I don't see or
    hear from it again??
    As you might percieve, I'm just a little rattled by the high handed way this
    has been foisted upon me despite my best efforts to avoid it.
    Please someone help reduce my blood pressure!

    Just a little update: Having found the secret of revealing the more
    meaningful labels in the "startup" tab of "System Config" (hovering over the
    "command" column entry), I have identified and disabled the damned "Browser
    Choice" item.
    After re-booting it seems to have been banished to digital hell where I hope
    it meets the EEC busybodies!
