still trying to remove branding

10 days ago you all helped me a lot with removing branding; now i'm about to edit the registry following these instructions from Stuartli:

"Open in turn the following Registry folders: Hkey_Current_User, Identities, {id-number}, Software, Microsoft, Outlook Express. Select the folder 5.0 (or whatever version of Outlook Express you are running), then look in the righthand pane for a value named WindowTitle.
You can modify the text held in this value (double-click to edit it) or just delete it.
If more than one id-number appears in your Registry, you may need to repeat the exercise for each one. "
My problem is that in the right-hand pane there is nothing named WindowTitle. There's a little iconsaying ab with (default) beside it; and under "Type" it says REG_SZ. Under Data it says Value not set.
Is this whole entry the thing I should delete?

Easier way. >>

Close all of your browser windows, then press
Start / Run and type (exactly)

Then open your browser

Tools / Internet Options and in the 'General' tab
press 'Use Current' as your home page. 'Apply' / 'OK'.

Spikeychris - I did that 10 days ago and it removed the branding from IE, but didn't touch OE.
It's the branding on OE that I'm trying to remove.

Remove brand name on Outlook Express, use regedit and navigate to registry key
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Identities\long name\Software\Microsoft\OutlookExpress\5.0
Look for WINDOW TITLE and change it or remove the entry to get the default

To restore the default animated logo in Internet Explorer and Outlook Express, use regedit and navigate to registry key
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar
Delete both BRANDBITMAP and SMBRANDBITMAP

To restore the default idle logo in Internet Explorer and Outlook Express, use regedit and navigate to registry key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
Delete both BRANDBITMAP and SMBRANDBITMAP
