Windows 2000 Sp3 Bug...

Dunno if it's a bug, but it sure is bugging me
With this new service pack, Microsoft introduced a function to change the default program to handle email, web etc.
So now I have no default web browser at all!
When clicking a link in oulook or mirc nothing happens, and when I set MSIE and outlook to be used as default it never applies the changes.
This is really annoying...but there is a way to get around it, just start the browser before you click the link in outlook or whatever you use.
But that's also annoying

Anyone else had this problem?

I didn't tryed, but I suspect that this could be made on purpose.
This way you are encouraged to not use this function, and so to keep ie and outlook express your default programs.
