system won't let firefox as default browser

hi,

windows 7 is breaking my ballz once again
this time it's the default browser

-I use both firefox and ie-64bit
-firefox is configured to check it's the default browser and ie-64bit not
-whenever I reboot firefox it complains it's not the default browser
-if I launch firefox as normal user it fails making firefox default
-if I launch firefox as zdmin it makes firefox default but only during the firefox session, as soon as firefox is closed it will be removed from default browser

-I have the same problem with ie-64bit if I ask it to be default

what the hell guys?

Hi buddy, have you run any utility to check for browser hijackers? And did you uninstall the 32bit IE. I assume the IE is overtaking as the default browser is it?

nope didn't run any utility

Internet Explorer 32bit is still here. IE doesn't overtake as the default browser in fact. In fact IE (32 or 64 bit) suffer from the same problem as firefox, impossible to make it default browser either, as if something else is overtaking.

A link that directs you to specific information about Firefox being the default browser is not a riddle, it is a way of providing you with information that might help you fix a problem.

I have checked the whole article and didn't find anything I didn't already knew. So can you really try to address this problem?

I believe you have chased off future help with your attitude. A simple "thanks, but I have tried that. Any other ideas" would have served to get you additional help.
