    In IE, click Tools, Internet Options, Programs and at the bottom of the
    screen, check the box IE should check to see if it is the default
    browser. This should make the prompt to make IE the default browser
    come up the next time you start IE.

    go to the Start> run prompt type iexplore
    ie will open up and may ask to become default
    if not tools>internet options>programs and there is a check box to select as default.
