Description
The product registration info button in the last panel of the Windows JDK installer currently launches IE to open the JDK privacy page.  However, the JDK online registration page is opened with the default desktop browser.  

The product registration info button should launch the default desktop browser to have a consistent user experience with the JDK registration.

EVALUATION

The installer runs this to show the .html file:
    	"[ProgramFilesFolder]\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

Instead of doing that, it should find the path of the Windows default
browser and use that instead of the above path.

EVALUATION

Per UE we should use the default browser, found that in order to use the
default browser correctly, the RegLocater must be instructed to get the
filename of the application, the Registry contains other flags too, and
if not instructed during the CreateProcess wrong args are passed in.

The fix is pretty much the same as in the description with some tweaks.
