Remove 'Branding' from Internet Explorer

The client was given a computer to keep by the company. Internet Explorer is labeled something like:  "Internet Explorer by XYZ Corp"

How do I remove this branding?
Would this branding be part of a monitoring system?  He doesn't want the company to observe his computer, even if it isn't on the office network anymore.

This is just simple branding, they will not be able to monitor the system because of it.
If you wish to replace the Microsoft Internet Explorer with your own brand, use regedt32 to navigate to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
On the Edit menu, Add Value name Window Title, as a string (REG_SZ) data type. Enter a text string.
When you open a new Internet Explorer window, all your window titles will have your text string appended.
To remove the custom title, simply delete the Window Title value name.
