Default browser

  dms_05 09:56 20 Feb 2011

I've used Opera for years as my default browser. Today IE9 and/or Chrome seem to have taken over and Opera asks every time its started if I want to make Opera the default broswer (I answer YES but this question is repeated every time Opera is started).

Starting IE9 or Chrome doesn't trigger any such request as it did in the past.

I suspect it's a setting in the Registry that has changed but don't know where to look.

Any suggestions?

I should have said I've used Control Panel > Default Programs and Opera isn't even displayed as an option.

I'm also using W7 64 bit Home Premium.

I used Revo to deep uninstall Opera then reinstalled. It now works as it should and as it has done for years.

Thanks rawprawn.
