Do you mean if "IE is the predetermined browser"?
If so, go to Tools-->Options-->Programs, and check/uncheck the last option there "Check if Internet Explorer ist te predetermined Browser".

Windows NT?Open the registry key HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser\Parameters. Set value to Auto, Yes, or No.

No= This value prevents the computer from participating as a browser.

Yes= This value makes the computer a browser. Upon startup, the computer attempts to contact the master browser to get a current browse list. If the master browser cannot be found, the computer will force a browser election. The computer will either be elected master browser or become a backup browser.
This value is the default on a computer running Windows 2000 Server and Windows NT Server.

Auto= This value makes the computer a potential browser. It might become a browser, depending on the number of currently active browsers. The master browser notifies this computer whether or not it is to become a backup browser.
This value is the default for computers running Windows 2000 Professional and Windows NT Workstation.
