I am running IE9 and Firefox 3.6, on Win7 32 bit OS. IE9 is set as default browser however whenever I click on a download update in PSI it always opens Firefox unless it is a Microsoft update in which case it states that it will not open with Firefox as it needs to open IE because Active X is required.

How do I get PSI to recognise that IE9 is my default browser.

I have checked the registry and sure enough it was set to Firefox, I have now changed it and IE comes up when I click on a link in PSI

Thanks very much for your help.
