The error mssg I receive when clicking on an email link is:"Could not perform this operation because the default email client is not properly installed." I never got this before. It worked fine before yesterday (5/16/2010) I'm running Windows Home Edition.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

What email program are you using? As Windows 7 does not come with a built in email program, whatever you are using will need to be selected as your default seeting for email. If you post what you are using (i.e. Outlook 2003, Outlook 2007….some other program) we can help more with the steps for settings these defaults.
