    Keep getting Browser Choice after re-entering EU

    Hi there
    After deleting the Browser Choice I keep getting the stupid prompt again the next time I log on to the Internet from INSIDE an EU country the wretched prompt appears again.

    Is there any way to disable this POS PERMANENTLY -- I often travel from Outside the EU to inside it.

    This stupid Browser prompt must be one of the most idiotic pieces of legislation Politicians ever had to deal with (and I've seen enough stupid politicians in my time).

    For once this isn't actually Ms or Windows fault - but it's annoying.

    In most cases it is sitting in the Task manager startup options. It is normally automatically removed from there when you deal with the browser Choice prompt. But manually remove it from the startup options and it should stop worrying you.
