Hello voiceartistusa and welcome to the forums

Can you open your Start Menu, click on Control Panel > Programs > Default Programs > Associate a file type or protocol with a program. This should bring up a list of your filetype associations.

Under the Extensions header, can you tell me what is listed in the Current Default column for the following names,

  • .htm
  • .html
And for these Protocols (at the bottom)

  • http
  • https

If nothing seems to work, click on Program and Access default. Select Non Microsoft option first. Then choose custom profile. Change access to mail, html and other options with your preference. This definitely will ensure your preferred program is used always and offers flexibility to use microsoft and non microsoft programs wherever applicable.
