I can't set Opera as my default browser

I just downloaded the latest Opera for my Windows 7 PC. The browser itself works well. But there's this problem that, in settings, it says ''The default browser is currently Opera''. But any attempt to open a webpage without opening the browser first opens Internet Explorer 11. So I decided to do it manually. I clicked Start menu and then default applications. Opera wasn't in the list. Internet Explorer was. I clicked Internet Explorer and looked at it's list of defaults. It was default (and couldn't disable) for the .url, webpages and other things, but it was disabled for others like .htmls. The .html thing actually showed the Opera logo and said something like ''Opera HTML File'' or whatever. Can you please help?
Windows 7 SP1
Opera Stable 41.0.2353.56 - Opera is up to date.

Try uninstalling and reinstalling Opera.
