Pardon my colorful language in this post. But I have a reason! I am pissed off
Just plugged in my Tata Photon USB dongle and got totally frustrated by this image. I mean, why the fu** is Yahoo and Tata Photon having this as home page in the middle of my presentation. I decided to fix this fu**ing automatic redirection for good. If you are equally frustrated by the automatic redirection crap by Tata Photon and cheap publicity, the following steps should help you out.
First up, I fired up my Process Monitor [you don’t need to do this] to find the following.
As you can easily notice, the following program is responsible for this. Good lord, they have hardcoded this stuff in the Dialer itself.
Rename this file. [I decided to delete it!!!]
Time to create your own dialer.
On your desktop [or any location of your choice] create a file called Dialer.bat and paste the following line in the batch file. Tata Photon+ is the name of the connection in Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections. Username and password is internet
rasdial "TATA PHOTON+" internet internet
You’re done. Instead of that wicked dialer, double click on this Dialer.bat and enjoy the Internet connectivity.
No more pesky startup pages!!!
Hope this helps! Quote of the day:
