A friend has changed the default settings on my pc so that Firefox is my default browser. How can I restore Internet Explorer as my default. My OS is XP Pro.

In your Start menu you should find Set Program Access and Defaults.

If not then Settings>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs>left hand menu panel.

Go to Control Panel Internet Options\Programs tick the box for IE to ask if it's Default Browser then open IE I think you will know the rest

Click start then select "set program access and defaults". Then slect custom and select IE as your default browser

You shouldn't let anyone, friend or not, interfere with your computer's configuration.

If someone had done that to my system there would be more than a few choice words spoken and a permanent ban on ever using the system again...:-)
