QuickPaste Date/Time launches Internet Explorer

A user had an interesting problem. When he used QuickPaste to paste the #CURRENTTIME# into a program such as Notepad, the paste would work ok but then Internet Explorer would launch - usually twice! 

It turned out to be a keyboard monitoring program called type32.exe

Details of that program are here:

Apparently, it's part of Microsoft's IntelliType.  Kill it, disable it, or teach it not to concern itself with the keystrokes sent as part of the date/time.
