I think this might do it (although why you would want to I don't know - I have just started using Firefox and it is infinitely preferable!).

In IE go to tools>Internet options. On the programs tab there check box to the effect that IE should check if it is the default browser, check this then click apply and OK. Close IE.

Re-open IE and you should get a window pop-up asking if you want IE to be the default. If you are sure you do click yes!

Good Luck!
