I downloaded some pages and instead of just downloading the link for a home page as it appears on the web, it added "default.htm" to my download. Is there some way to have that not happen?

There is a simple reason. For example, if you are downloading from http://www.server.com/, Offline Explorer will create a directory c:\download\www.server.com\ on your hard disk and place there page in the directory.

The page should be saved in a file. However Windows doesn`t allow files to have empty names. This is why Offline Explorer names files as default.htm if the original URL ends with a slash symbol and doesn`t contain any filename.

Anyway, this doesn`t hurt offline browsing anyway and all links in other files will be converted to include default.htm filename.
