    Question Please advise how to change my default browser?

    Sorry for the very basic question, I'm new to this forum & have spent a lot of time searching unsuccessfully for a solution.

    My OS is Vista Home Premium, I have the latest, updated, free edition of Spybot on my home laptop. However, the Spybot browser settings auto-default to IE and Firefox. Can't find how to change my default browser to Chrome, which has been my browser for years?!
    My laptop is running very slow. I have to manually delete cookies daily. Frustrated!

    Thanks in advance, would love some advice please.

    In Chrome go to Settings (or go type chrome://chrome/settings/ in the address bar). At the bottom of the page click on the button <Make Google Chrome my default browser>.

    I registered with the forums because my browser is already my default browser, but when I run Spybot, it only checks Internet Explorer and Firefox. If I have my settings already set as Chrome being the default, what else do I have to do to get Spybot to run scans on Chrome?

    I don't use Chrome,so I can't really check for myself.This is the last post I can find about it,looks like Chrome support is on the to-do list:

    So,I don't believe Spybot scans Chrome at this time.

    It is a very new browser and chrome itself does not offer any interface for immunizing yet.

    As for making Chrome your Standart-Browser, you have different options.
    The one, i would prefer is this:

    - Open Chrome -> Go to Settings (click the 3 lines-icon on top-right->Settings) -> there will you find an entry "Default-Browser" if you scroll a bit down.
