Windows 7: how can i change Win7 default Explorer program to .....

how can i change Win7 default Explorer program to .....

Hi all, with help from the team here i have now got rid of Libraries once and for all, thanks.

Now i have found a far better Explorer program, that i want to use all the time, so sometimes when i click on some things, UP POPS the original Windows Explorer program which i dont want.

It is probably common knowledge that it IS easy to change the Default Browser program and/or the Default Email Program, is it possible to change the Default Explorer program ?, please.

the Program i am using is called XYplorer and i can thoroughly recomend it, particularly if i know how to change it to the default.
