Remove An Important Choice To Make: Your Browser

26 Feb/10

If you are living in Europe right now and using a computer with a Microsoft operating system chance is that you are now presented with a program upon system startup that states “An Important Choice To Make: Your Browser”. This screen appears after system startup and leads to another screen called Select Your Web Browser. Many European Windows users are not sure if this is a legit program or part of a malicious software attack.

Those users should note that this is a legit Windows application that has been added to European versions of Windows by Microsoft to comply with European Union regulations. It basically allows European Windows users to select a different web browser than Microsoft Internet Explorer.

The problem with that screen however is that it appears every time the user loads the operating system if no selection is made on the screen (for instance by closing the window after it appears).

It is however very easy to remove the screen from appearing in Windows after startup. Just follow the instructions below to remove it from Windows:

Click on the start button of the Windows operating system, enter msconfig in there and hit enter. This should open the System Configuration tool in Windows.

Switch to the Startup tab in the window to see all the programs that are loaded during system startup. A checkmark indicates programs that are loaded automatically while programs without a checkmark are not loaded. Locate the entry browserchoice in the listing and remove the checkmark from that program to ensure that it will not be loaded on the next system startup.

A click on OK will submit the changes. You can then restart the computer right away to see that the browser choice screen does not appear again.
