windows 8.0 accelerator

Is it possible to disable the accelerator icon?
I find it annoying.
Whenever I highlight any text, that accelerator icon pops up. Is there a way to disable this?
I disabled all my accelerators, but it still shows up.

I think you mean Internet Explorer 8. Big difference from Windows 8

But yeah, go to Tools, Internet Options, and click to the Advanced tab. Uncheck the "Display Accelerator button on selection" option and it should get rid of it.
