Microsoft has developed complex instructions to remove part of Windows 2000 that had generated bad publicity in Germany because it was written by a firm headed by a Scientologist, a spokesman said yesterday.

"The problem exists only because people and the media in Germany became aware that the author of the tool is an American company called Executive Software Inc., whose CEO is a member of the Scientology Church," said Thomas Baumgaertner, a Microsoft spokesman in Germany.
