Once or twice (the latest times being twice today) I start up Opera and I get the message that it is not my default browser, or I start up Outlook and it says that it is not my default email program. Today, I put in the CD-ROM with the manual for my new monitor, selected English from the display that popped up, and it then started Opera to look at its browser based content, and told me it was not the default browser. If it really thought that it was not the default, why did it start Opera rather than Firefox or IE7? Surely it must already have been the default? And why would it think that Outlook was not the default email program? I have used no other for years.
