Each time I startup or restart, the system changes the default browser to IE7. Upon opening Firefox, I am prompted to make Firefox the default browser and to check each time its opened.

I have tried the obvious things like setting FireFox as the default browser in "Setting program access and Defaults", and I have tried all the solutions proposed at the Mozilla support site (i.e. changing the registered file types in the Folder Options) to no avail.

My question: How do I keep the system from hijacking my default browser from Firefox back to IE7 with each restart?
