Re: Default Browser
Please state your IE version and full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3;
Vista SP1) when posting to this newsgroup.

1. [Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs | ] Set Program Access and Defaults
| Configuration that's already checked | Browser: Select "Internet Explorer"
here.

1b. Now check your settings here: IE Tools | Internet Options | Programs |
Default web browser.

If no joy, see:

Re: Default Browser
Thank you both so much. Apologies, I'm using Vista Home Edition and IE7, I
should have said.
You put me on the right track, I went to control panel and reset the default
to IE via 'Default Programs' As you may have gathered I'm not exactly an
expert in this field,
Thanks again to you both,
Regards,
Alan.
