Okay, I primarily run Firefox, but my father is having trouble using firefox while banking, and everytime I install IE 7 and then run it, it prompts me to set it to the default browser, and the same with firefox. I was just wondering if i could run both of them without getting this annoying prompt, now normally it wouldn't be such a big deal, but my dad isn't very computer savvy, so he hates it when the computer doesn't do something straight away, he likes things simple.

Go to the Options settings in both browsers and uncheck the boxes that ask to check whether browser is default browser at startup.

Contrary to what Microsoft would have you believe, you can run as many web browsers as you like without any complications. You just can't have both of them being the default browser at the same time.
