    Internet Explorer provided by 'isp name' may look cool but in one case the command line (iebrand.exe) for an ISP during installation gives a false trojan alarm - Win32/startpage.WD trojan. Sorry if this is old news.

    I personally would not view it as a "false trojan alarm" given the fact most if not all Win32/startpage type malware including those legitimate ones like the "'isp name'" iebrand.exe do make changes to the registry that should cause anti-malware programs....Nod32 included....to notify a user of this said change. What action a program takes in dealing with this find would be important tho.

    JMO,

    True, true.. NOD 32 as expected 'denies' the branding. ISP's must outgrow the idea that branding IE is a 'cool thing' or 'advert' and come to terms with reality about possible risks.

    btw if you want to remove the isp branding just use spybot on advanced mode
