I am using a new ivybrdige computer running windows 7 and i have found a problem. I tried to respond to a "contact us" link on the manufacturers website and the follwing message appeared:-

"could not perform this operation because default mail client is not properly installed". I understand that the 64bit Internet Explorer cannot be set as the default browser.

I have downloaded windows live mail however I cannot set this as my default e-mail client. I have accessed the Start/set program access and computer default/ custom/ and it simply says " use current e-mail program there is no option to select windows live mail as the default. I miss be missing something, probably blinding obvious to you but to me ....... Any help gratefully received. I understand that if I can set the above as the default e-mail client then I will be able to use the "contact us " buttons on websites. Thanks
