Email probs after uninstalling Chrome

I decided to uninstall Chrome browser because I could not play card games on Pogo with it.
But after uninstall I tried to open a link in one of my emails but got "Application not found" this was the same for all links in all emails.
I reinstalled Chrome just to test it and the links all worked again.
What is happening here and How can I uninstall Chrome and make my links work.

What is your operating system and what is your default browser? Having removed Chrome which browser do you want to be the default?

I will be using IE9 beta as default.
I run Vista home premium

Is ie9 set as your default browser?
Click on Start Orb - Default Programs - Set your default programs - Click on Internet Explorer on the left and then "set this program as default".

thanks woolwell

I did that although I did select that option when installing IE.
I will need to uninstall Chrome again now to see if links in emails work now right?

They should work without uninstalling Chrome.

When you click on Start is IE shown top left?

yes it is

Do the links now work?

They do work without uninstalling Chrome, but I wanted to uninstall for the reason stated in my first post, it but Its no good doing that if I cannot open links in mail.
