Default Browser Issues.

I am having browser issues that I don't know if anyone else is having. I am using Flock and it is supposed to be set to default but when I click on a link outside of the browser it will either do nothing or will open the site in IE8. also whenever I open the browser it goes into the safe mode menu and also asks if I want to set it to the default. this is annoying as it is the only issue I am having with Win 7 apart from not running Combat Arms EU.

Click on Start and search for "default programs". Be sure that Flock is set as the default browser.

Thank you that worked. everything was ticked in there but there was no tick in the select all box, so I put the tick in the select all and that has now sorted the Link issue.

every time I open flock though it still asks me if I want to make it the default, bearable but anoying.

I figured out why it kept going into the safe mode menu, I had pined the safe mode shortcut to the task bar instead of the normal launcher oops.

When it asks you if you would like this to be the daulft browser, is there a check box to not show that message again?
