I want to set Avant Browser as a default browser. I click button Tools->Avant Browser Options->Files and Protocols->Set Avant Browser as default web browser. Unfortunately it is not work correctly. For file extension " *.mht; *.mhtml " I can`t swich on.
Formally I can set it on, but after restart Avant, this field is still empty.

I can`t find this in Control panel in Windows XP. Can you explain, how can I do?

I successfully set Avant Browser as default web browser. To do that, first I have to change windows account for admin rights. Normally my windows account is normal user (not admin). I did like in first post on top of the topic. Only one change is admin rights in windows account.
It is an Avant bug because for instance Google Chrome not need admin rights to change default browser.
