Default Browser Setting, Where Art Thou?

I've decided to switch over completely to Google Chrome, and on my work laptop it's NBD. My home laptop, however, asks me EVERY DAMN TIME I START CHROME if I want to make it my default browser; clicking OK does nothing (Firefox is still the default). More inside...

Firefox is not set to ask to be my default, and isn't necessarily run in the meantime. If I use Windows 7's Control Panel setting to set the Default Program, it only offers choices of IE or FF - even though Chrome & Opera are installed.
So, I head to the web, and find the registry keys that (supposedly) determine this default. I build a batch file, and set them = "C:\pathname\Chrome.exe":
... and check to make sure they changed.
