Other browsers

It does go to the default browser. At least, for me. ShellExecute() automatically knows this (and that's what I assume MrG uses for that link)... so to prove or disprove this theory, go to Start, Run, and type http://www.CCleaner.com

and see which browser opens.

Ah I totally recognize that error. Easy to fix. :)

 

Go into Internet Explorer (Start, Run, IEXPLORE). Tools>Internet Options. Programs tab, Reset Web Settings.. yes. Tell IE to check whether it's the default browser. Close IE. Re-open IE. IE may ask you if IE can be the default browser. Uncheck the box that says 'always perform this check', but answer YES, so IE is now the default browser. Close IE. Open Firefox, go into FF's options, and set FF as the default browser. http:// from the run line should work again, and CCleaner's URLs should take you to Firefox instead of IE.
