Annoyed by having MS Office Research Explorer Bar popping up

Since starting using Microsoft Office 2003 I don't know how many times I've unintentionally started the Research Explorer Bar by using Alt+Click. I tried to find a way to disable Alt+Click or change it but failed to find anything even after spending some time searching on the internet for a solution. So I found that I had two options.
1) In research options deselect all services. This at least stops it from start searching the internet.
2) I then started Add or Remove Programs and clicked on Change>Add or Remove Features. Selected advanced customization and found that below Office Tools it was possible to remove the feature Research Explorer Bar that "Allows you to use the Research tool and its collection of information services from Microsoft Internet Explorer."
I just hope that the next version handles this better.
If you have found a better solution please leave a comment.
