In IE, select the Tools menu then Internet Options. Go to the Programs tab for the option to make IE the default.

Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > "Set Program Access And Defaults" (on the left)

Open: Custom (click arrow on the right)

Select "Internet Explorer" under "Choose a default Web Browser"

Click OK
