Hi Sean :-)

How to set IE as default browser:
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/ie/nopromptdefault.htm

Courtesy of Ramesh –
How to Make Internet Explorer the Default Web Browser (Q284456)
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q284456

Set the default browser for your user profile:
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/defaultbrowser.htm

Internet Explorer should check to see whether it is the default browser -
option does not work:

Hope this helps.

Also check settings in Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Set Program
