    To get IE to check that it is the default browser, goto the Tools> Internet options> Programs Tab. Once there check the box 'IE should check to see if it is the default browser'.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi AlMujtahid,

    Do the same with Netscape, (I don't use it, so can't tell you how) :) to make sure that it is not set as the default browser.
