Uninstall your browsers using Revo Uninstaller. Use advanced mode.

Have a look under this registry key for "rogue" entries

Default Programs - Remove a Listed Program

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\RegisteredApplications

Of course, you will back up the registry key before deleting/changing anything.
