If Internet Explorer is the only browser installed on the computer now, you just need to reset the file assocations for the .html files back to IE. A quick way of doing this is to open IE go to Tools > Internet Options > Programs Tab. Put a tick beside "Internet Explorer should check to see whether it is the default browser" - click Apply and OK. Close down all open IE windows and then open it up again. You should see a prompt asking if you wish to make IE the default browser, so say "Yes" (and you can put a tick beside "don't ask me again" if you wish).

Your saved html files now should all open with Internet Explorer.
