SP3 Changes Preferences

Just installed Service Pack 3(SP3) on a Windows XP install. The upgrade took about half an hour in total but went fine. After the obligatory restart, I have noticed at least one annoyance: the SP3 install changes your default browser to IE7. I had it set to Firefox Beta and saw that SP3 reset it to the native browser! When will MS stop messing with user's personal settings?
