When ever I open up my IE7 program I get a message stating that IE is not my current browser and am given the option whether I would like to make it my default. This message happens everytime despite the fact that I have already chosen IE7 in the Internet options in Control Panel. Something is causing my system not to recognise IEP as my default although Windows Internet Explorer is displayed on the top bar. Can anyone shed anylight on this problem?

Try another method.

Start menu/All Programs/Set Program and Access Defaults.


Choose a default Web browser.
Check Internet Explorer, click OK.

If that doesn't work, you could try resetting internet explorer settings.
Internet Options/Advanced tab.
Click RESET, then Apply.

Resetting will change your homepage to msn, and can easily be changed back to whatever you want.
