"Default Browser" is a setting in the Operating System, but each browser has their own "link" to make that setting in Windows for their own browser. I don't use Chrome so I don't know where that setting is located in Chrome. You can changes that pref in Windows thru the Control Panel > Add / Remove Programs > System Defaults, or whatever that path is in Win7.
