just reset all web settings in internet options, ie usually checks if it is the default browser itself... check all the advanced settings too

It would be helpful to know which programs are not behaving properly. Also sounds like you deleted the program directory (windows explorer) rather than using the uninstaller routine.

if u r on XP, (other O/S or IE versions might have different location of this)

open IE, go to tools > Internet options, click Programs tab, and at the bottom you'll see a checkbox (mentioning that to see weather IE is default browser or not),

just click it checked, and next toime you'll open IE<it'll be default.

again repeating other's responce:

WHY DID YOU REMOVED MOZILLA??
