windows live mail problem

Hi all,

Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this error message? This is what comes up when I try to click on a link in an email message.
Thanks

Did you turn off IE8?

No, not that I am aware of. This just started yesterday when I tried to open an email link. I thought it was a bad link but now it's happening with everything. Including the link to respond to this message.

Got it! Apparently, neither Firefox or Internet Explorer was set as the default browser. Changed that and everything's working again.

Thank Pete

I didn't do anything helpful really. You figured this one out on your own. Give yourself a well deserved pat on the back.
