Are you as annoyed as me in regard to the “first run wizard” thingy that IE8 is displaying the first time it runs?? It’s as annoying as the older IE’s that also launched the Email creation wizard… as if it was not enough that they always start off by launching some stupid intro site..

Anyhow, no reason to get TOO upset, as with most things there are ways around this, so take a look here;

many lovely ways to get rid of this stupidity.

One of the simplest is this;

Registry:
DWORD : “DisableFirstRunCustomize” set to 1 under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
