...the following MS Knowledge Base Article addresses the subject of Browser Helper Objects (BHO's) - another name for your 'browser attachment'.

This article provides the Registry Address where a BHO's loading instruction resides. Deleting that key will resolve your annoyance.

[NOTE: tampering with the Registry can break your OS]
