Re: Comcast propaganda

Posts: n/a
I found the registry key to change the message. It's in HKEY CURRENT USER -
Software - Microsoft - Internet Explorer - Main. It's called "Windows
Title" and it's simple, editable text. Now I have a follow-up question: If
a registry does not HAVE that key, it is ok to create it and put a message
in that active title bar? I mean, will it hurt anything?
Thanks for the input!
