Re: Default issue

The effected icons are all URLs. That have been dragged and dropped on to my desktop.
However, if I make the slimbrowser the default all is well.

Re: Default issue

Firefox is the same as Opera although you make then the default, Avant still takes priority and gives you no choice you have to open with Avant. It seems only Slimbrowser stays the default.
All very strange.
Might it be an idea to uninstal Avant clear out any 'bits' and reinstall?

Re: Default issue

Update
This is weird. If I make Slimbrowser the default Avant accepts this and I can open progs in slim browser and there is no mention of Avant Just the usual offer 'Open'
I will now try Firefox.
Will let you know the results.

Re: Default issue

Yes I am logged in as Admin. There has been one change On clicking on the URL in your email to me just now, it did open in Opera, However if I use opera to go to a website and drag the URL to my desktop, if I click on that it still only offers me Avant to open it with.

Re: Default issue

Thanks kudos.
I D/L the 'default browser' and chose Opera for a test, but no luck.
If I click on any program that would open a browser the only option is Avant which appears in bold at the top of the open dialog box.

Default issue

If I make another browser the default, I find any icon I click on opens with Avant, I have tried 'Set program access and defaults' with no success. Is there a way I can still keep Avant but stop it overriding my default browser.
