Try this and see what happens.
Click on Start then Internet Explorer. Do you still see the same "Provided by ..." junk? If not, right click on the icon you normally click on and select Properties. Post the data from the Start In box here please.

Here is what you asked for:
The explorer starts in my blank home page, like it's supposed to, but the title bar still says the name of my former provider. Any ideas?
Edit: Oops I forgot to answer - no, I don't see any of that "provided by" junk in the start menu, if that's what you mean.

No need to apologize. I actually think it's rather amusing. Every little step, even a wrong one, helps me learn something.
Rats, I meant the Target box, not the Start In box, sorry.
Anyway, SUCCESS! I found the bugger right where krmooo said. And even worse, I noticed it was also on the title bar of Outlook Express. I managed to find that one in the registry as well. I modified the text instead of deleting them by just removing the "provided by ...." part. All is good now. Thanks to both of you for your help.
P.S. It annoys me that these totally unnecessary modifcations happen without our consent. This must be the IPs way of sticking their name on computers forever...at least until someone goes into the registry. Ugh!
