User Comments

browserchoice.exe ist ein Programm, welches nach Zufallsprinziep den Standardbrowser für Windows auswählt. Es wird mit Update KB976002 eingespielt. Durch ein EU Urteil, das Microsoft verloren hat, wurd MS zur neutralen (!) Auswahl durch den Kunden gezwungen. Deswegen sind die Systemmeldungen von browserchoice.exe auch völlig neutral gehalten, ohne MS-Logo, was viele Nutzer verwirrt, und oft zu Viren/Trojaner-Vermutung führt. Die Meldungen stehen in der Datei browserchoice.htm
