Just a few days back I made Chrome my default browser. Can you please suggest how to make IE the default browser again?

Go to Tools menu .. Then Internet Options then click on Programs tab .. check this box ---- Tell me if Internet Explorer is not a default browser

In IE 8:

Tools > Internet Options > Programs.

There's a Make Default button at the top of the tab.
