Remove Hacked By Godzilla or Blazle.vbs From Internet Explorer

Edit the Default Description in Microsoft Internet Explorer Title Bar

In its default settings, Microsoft Internet Explorer displays the title/name of the website being accessed in the IE’s title bar and following the website name, the string “- Microsoft Internet Explorer” (or, in some cases, the company/ISP provider’s name) is displayed in the title bar.

If you feel that something should be done about this, and wish to change/remove the default text that is displayed in the IE title bar, then you have come to the right place. Perform the following steps to hack into IE and change the text as per your wish.

  1. Open the Run prompt from the Start menu.
  2. Type in regedit and hit Enter to start the Registry Editor.
  3. Locate the following registry branch in the Registry Editor:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main

  4. In the Main registry key, double-click on the key named Window Title in the right hand side panel. [Note: If you find that there is no key by the name of Window Title, then you have to create one by that name. For this, go to New -> String Value, and then enter Window Title.]
  5. After double-clicking, enter the text you want to see on title bar of IE as the value for the registry key. [If you leave the field blank then nothing will be displayed after the website name in the title bar.]
  6. Exit the Registry Editor and restart Internet Explorer.

This time, Internet Explorer will display the text you entered in Step 6 above, or will display only the site name if you left it blank. This cute hack lets you personalize you Internet Explorer experience in an innovative (and cool!) way.

How To Change / Personalize Internet Explorer With Your / My Name

Make the Internet Explorer Display Your name on it

A sweet little hack into Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (IE) can personalize it especially for you – by carving your name on the top panel (the one that contains the website name and “Microsoft Internet Explorer” written on it). This cute customization can give you the extra edge – particularly if you want to show off to your friends or your siblings.

The above figure depicts the typical browser window for IE, where the default string of “Windows Internet Explorer” follows the website name. After you carry out the hack, you can change the title text to anything you want – for instance, your own name. As an example, see the figure below, which shows an IE window, but has the text “ABCXYZ” instead of the typical “Microsoft Internet Explorer”.

To perform this crafty hack, do the following:

  1. Open the Registry Editor by entering regedit in the Run command.
  2. Locate the registry key for the following tree-branch:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
  3. Create a String registry value by the name Window Title.
  4. Double click on Window Title, and enter the text you want to see in place of “Microsoft Internet Explorer” as its data.
  5. Exit the Registry Editor and restart IE.

You will find that the browser window title now displays the text that you put in as the value data in Step 4 above.
