So after 40 minutes of wasting time (searching how to do it) I got nothing.

Anyone know how i can make Internet Explorer the default browser? I tried and couldnt find it.. An answer is all i am looking for.

This was originally named something else, but I renamed it so I could find it again. It's buried in a thread somewhere.

Anyway, this restores the registry settings for IE and has fixed IE getting hosed a few times. By Opera, or seemingly randomly. I've had to run this at least 3 times in the last 3 months.

There are cab extractors I'm sure that could be used on it, but otherwise I wouldn't have a clue, I just saved it from another thread. I couldn't find the thread, so I just attached the cab I'd saved.

Unzip it was WinRAR and have a look at the _setup.xml.
Or try a product like WinCE CAB Manager, or any other good cab creation software :)
Or just google, creating CAB files, there's lots of suggestions

Sorry if this is a newb question. It's working with email links, but how do I change the HTC touchflo settings to make IE the browser that is invoked from the touchflo menu at the bottom of the screen? I can't seen any touchflo settings besides the thing about sounds when finger scrolling, etc.

Thank you, you have helped me a lot!!

I've wasting my time looking for a solution for this, as just making an association ended up in infinite loop! (this Microsoft sh*t!), but your program solved it!!!

Thank you from Spain!

----> Thanks!

This worked on my HTC Touch Pro and my HTC Touch Pro II ...Opera just isn't ready to be the default browser. Too much overhead, its just too slow (even on the Touch Pro II) and I just cant count on it for viewing web pages consistantly like I can with IE. One day I will be able to watch a YouTube video on my Windows Mobile phone ...still waiting for that day. The Droid certainly is a fast bugger and can you tube but between the keyboard and the excessive power usage ...and quite honestly lack of application support ...I am sticking with Windows for now. This little fix made my life much better. Thanks again.
