Default Opening Links In The Wrong Browser

Open Control Panel, click Tools/Folder Options then File Types tab. Scroll
to (NONE)URL-Hyper Text Transfer Protocol and make sure the Open action is
associated with Internet Explorer (iexplore.exe).

It sounds like your installation of the AOL Browser has hijacked the file
association for that action.

Click on Edit and review the info in the graphic. The info in the box pointing to the "Application used to perform action" should read (and confirm that iexplore.exe is found at that location on your computer):

"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -nohome

See www.oehelp.com/ielnk.aspx

Also try going to Control Panel | Add / Remove Programs | Set Program access
and defaults and set it to IE and OE.
