Resetting IE back to Default Internet

My name is Dan. I installed Mozilla Firefox, due to being bored one night, and stupidly pressed 'OK' when it said "Do you want Mozilla Firefox to be your Default Internet?" Well I've since then uninstalled the program using it's very own uninstall.exe. I'm not able to click on links in AIM profiles because this sign pops up:

Then - it asks me to browse for that exact .exe file to find it. -- It says 'Wrong Handler,' too.

Also - shortly after this started happening -- My Internet Explorer now looks like it's gone back to the stoneage. I'd post another picture, but as of Now, Paint can't save files because it was "Interrupted."

Basically -- The backgrounds are White, and everything is widely spaced out, and the font seems to be that standard font for any microsoft word document. Times New Roman.

So If you guys could Help me I'd greatly appreciate it!

Thank you!

I'll be checking in!

In the Control Panel, go to Add-Remove, on the left select "choose program access and default". Tick IE as default browser.

You may want to do a System Restore to a date prior to the Firefox experiment if this doesn't change the display enough.
