Right-click on the IE icon on your desktop, choose Properties from the menu, then click the Shortcut tab. Look at the "Target" field, it should read, "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

Likewise for Firefox, but the "Target" field should read, "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

Is it not just giving you the choice of picking one to be your default web browser.
