Revert "display HTML in default browser using Windows' shell API"
Since 4804aab (help (Windows): Display HTML in default browser using Windows' shell API, 2008-07-13), Git for Windows used to call `ShellExecute()` to launch the default Windows handler for `.html` files. The idea was to avoid going through a shell script, for performance reasons. However, this change ignores the `help.browser` config setting. Together with browsing help not being a performance-critical operation, let's just revert that patch.
