    Default Web Browser

    How do I make my preferred Internet browser the default browser. I like AOL
    Explorer the best. Yet, whenever a program opens up a browser for me, it
    uses Mozilla Firefox. It's so frustrating. How do I make the AOL Explorer
    the browser that is opened by default?

    Note that I am using XP. I couldn't find a discussion group for that
    software.
