Default Links open in IE

Hi.

I have Google as my default search engine. Why therefore do some links open in IE

Regards Mike

Which is your default browser and when does this happen?

What programs does it happen to? I've noticed this happen with Word and Chrome is my default browser but sometimes it opens Internet Explorer.

Some links specify the browser to open in.

Does this mean if I disable IE these links will not work
