Go to Tools, Internet Options, Programs Tab (across the top).

You should see a section that says Default Web Browser. You can make IE your default, and even check the box to make it check if it is the default.

Use Internet Explorer Every Time

1. Activate Internet Explorer on your computer.

2. Click on 'Tools' in the toolbar menu.

3. Select 'Internet Options' from the list of choices.

4. Go to the 'Programs' tab.

5. Find the 'Default Web Browsers' heading.

6. Click the 'Make Default' button.

7. Click 'OK.' Your default Internet browser is now Internet Explorer.

8. Test your new settings. If you designate Internet Explorer as you default browser, any Web link you click from your computer should now open in that program. For instance, if you click a link someone has sent you via email, the Web site should automatically load in a new Internet Explorer window or tab.

I hope this helps!
