    Default browser...? (IE 6.0)

    I hope this is the right or best place to ask this question. I work on a networked machine, using Windows 2000, IE 6.0, and Office 2000. In MS-Word, I open a document that contains a link to a document on our organization's web page. I click on the link, and immediately Netscape Navigator launches, not IE. The link address appears in the "Location" window (Netscape's equivalent of IE's address window), but then I get an error message telling me Navigator cannot locate the server for the address. Here are some facts that may help understand this problem.

    1. Obviously, we have Netscape Navigator (Communicator) installed on this machine, but I personally almost never use it.
    2. I believe we've set up Navigator to use a dial-up connection by default. This setting would explain why Netscape can't locate the server, n'est pas? IE, on the other hand, by default goes straight through a proxy server and searches via a T-1 line or some such.
    3. If I copy and paste the address into IE's address window, the link works just fine.

    My questions are as follows:

    a. Why does this particular hyperlink insist on launching Netscape, and how can I put a stop to this behavior?
    b. How do I know which browser is my DEFAULT browser, and how do I set that default?

    In IE, click Tools/Internet Options and the Programs tab. At the bottom is the setting you need.
