Hey

I use MSN messenger alot, but I find this little issue to irritate me alot.

When friends sends me links to all sort of sites it always opens with IE instead the one I always use. (Avant Browser).
Is there any way to change that?

thanks in advance

If you want links from other applications open in the browser of your choice, you need to make that browser default browser instead of IE.

In IE go to Tools > Internet Options > Programs > uncheck "Internet Explorer should check to see whether it is the default browser"

Then go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Set Program Access and Defaults

and make the browser you want default browser. :tazz:
