lock your internet prefs file
Authored by: Anonymous on Apr 22, '02 01:27:18PM

To prevent Internet Explorer from being set as your default every time you restart (or so it seems), set the System Prefs/Internet/Web browser to the one you want, and then go to your home directory, then to your Library folder, and then to the Preferences folder, and get info on the file "com.apple.internetconfig.plist", and check the "Locked" box. Now it will stay the way you set it.

But when legimate changes to the settings, like maybe establishing a new default home page, be prevented using this method?
