Olly, a friend came up with this for you from the MS site:

1. Start regedit
2. Go to the key 
3. Double-click on the value "ShowIE4" and change the value data to "0" 
instead of "1".
4. Exit regedit
5. Reboot and the annoying IE4 welcome message should be history
If you wish it to actually work, see "How to Cause the Internet Explorer 
Welcome Screen to Appear"

Hope this is helpful.
Happy new years!
