Deleting Tabs

Hello,

Is there a way to permanently delete a tab? When downloading software from
my DSL provider an annoying tab was automatically created. I attempted to
disable the tab, however it reloads each time I open Internet Explorer. I
would just prefer to delete the tab, if possible.

Thank you. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

IE version?
Windows version?
What is the name of the tab and what is in it?

Re: Deleting Tabs

Thank you for the quick response.

I am using Internet Explorer 7. The operating system is Windows XP
Professional. In case it makes a difference: software is 2003 Small
Business Office Edition.

The tab is named Verizon Surround. It appears to be Verizon's version of a
media player.

Re: Deleting Tabs

Does your IE homepage include two tabs and is one of them this new one?
What's the other tab? Can you change your homepage (tabs)? What software
did you download/install from Verizon?

Re: Deleting Tabs

Hi PA Bear:

The EI7 homepage currently includes two tabs. The first tab is the default
homepage which is Google. The second tab is the Verizon Surround. I beleive
I can change the home page tab through Tools/Internet Options/Home Page. But,
I do not know how to get rid of the Verizon Surround tab.

Unfortunately, I attempted to download Windows Live from the Verizon Central
website. I have encountered a host of problems since trying to download
that crap and Verizon technical support cannot resolve my issues.

I would really love to delete this Verizon Surround tab.

Thank you.

Select the Verizon Surround tab.
Click the down arrow by the Home icon.
Choose Remove.
