I have used IE for many years (IE8 now) but I recently tried the Google Chrome Web browser as my default browser. After a couple of months I uninstalled Google Chrome & reverted back to IE8. Since that change Secunia tells me it is 'unable to locate the appropriate web browser for the requested URL' whenever I try to use the Download Solution, Solution Wizard or click on the Forum Link.
How may I remedy the situation please?

Set IE as default using "set program access and defaults".

The registry had been over enthusiasticly modified by Win Optimizer, all seems to be working correctly now.
Many Thanks
