Seems Comodo has inserted itself into my list of Trusted Publishers in IE8 and my "Remove" button is disabled. I don't appreciate this one bit, especially since one of the certs has expired. Is this normal or cause for concern? How can I get my Remove option back? Any suggestions much appreciated. Thanks a lot!

i don't see this as an issue but you are right that there should be an opt-out.

You could use DelDomains - but. as it states, it will remove everything

Firstly download: DelDomains.inf
Locate DelDomains.inf right-click and select: Install
Note: you will not see any on-screen action ...
This will remove all entries in the Trusted, Restricted,and Enhanced Security Configuration Zones.
Note once you do this, any previous restricted zone hacks (spywareblaster, ie-spyad, etc) will need to be reapplied.

Thanks mOle, you guys are awesome, you have an answer for everything! Lol. I had read somewhere there was a bit a of controversy surrounding some of the certificates Comodo was handing out -- that some of the software vendors were somewhat unscrupulous (involving ad-ware add-ons, etc.). I don't know how truthful these reports are, but when I saw my Remove button disabled I was disturbed, not to mention perturbed! Thanks again, Cheers
