Hi Nancy -
It doesn’t sound virus-like. Someone was probably just trying to ‘spoof’ your email address (use the address without your knowing it – easily and commonly done) – and you received all the left-overs from it. It has nothing to do with your computer.
To set IE as the default browser:
Open IE Go to Tools->Internet Options On the ‘Programs’ tab, make sure the checkbox next to ‘Tell me if IE is not the default web browser’ IS checked. Hit OK. Close IE Open IE When prompted to set IE as the default, select yes. That should do it.
Happy New Year
