I want to get IE back as my default browser for everything
 
Okay I just hooked up Verizon DSL service and they are in bed with Netscape Navigator because they installed it on my computer. Needless to say--IT SUCKS. Now I can use IE for everything EXCEPT when I click on a link from AIM. In other words, any other links that pop up--from other sites, from a message board like this--pop up in IE. But AIM links pop up in NN which I hate. They never did before until now.

Is there a way to fix this? Is it some setting on my computer I should fix or on IM?

thanks.

In IE, under Tools->Internet Options...->Programs, there's a checkbox for "Internet Explorer should check to see whether it is the default". Check it. Then the next time your run IE it should ask if you want to make it the default browser.

How about an "upgrade" or reinstall to 5.5?
