    Default Web browser settings is stored in registry and you can find the registry entry for your default browser at
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Clients\StartMenuInternet\
    Default value indicate the default web browser.

    Thanks

    Thanks

    I dont use 98 anymore but I will try to find out at what versions of Win its stored at what location in registry.

    Still the site is under testing but the mail should be dispatched in fact if it hasnt I will let you know the active code.

    Thanks
