When you first load up IE or Mozilla, for example, it should say immediately "set as default browser" and just check the box to check it every time and it will keep it that way. If not, go into Internet options under either browser and find it in there and set it like that. Very simple to do.

You can also change it under Start -> Set Program Access and Defaults.

I'm not a fan of Internet Explorer or Microsoft Outlook, but I'm a sucker for WMP!
