Browser pas

Desperate one behaves vilely. Opera installer v11.11 made that browser default without asking me (I can swear, no questions were asked). To return the IE as default browser (not that I like or use IE for browsing, but to make it start first for test purposes) I had to modify the registry.
As it turned out, the HKCR hive is not a link but a cascade union of the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes and then HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes. So, modifying one branch, make sure there is no the same in the second place which will override the values.
