OK, when you say to make IE the default program, do you mean the checkbox 
for it to check to see if it's the default browser? If so, I checked it, 
OKed out, closed and reopened it. It was still checked off. But when I 
opened SM, it didn't ask to be the default. I looked at the SM 
preferencesoptions and it's still grayed out as the default browser. There's 
no checkmark in Firefox, but when I manually check, it still thinks it's my 
browser too. So now do I have 3 default browsers??
