Windows 7: " Send page by e-mail " and the " Send link by e-mail " are grayed out


14 Aug 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, SP1
 
 
" Send page by e-mail " and the " Send link by e-mail " are grayed out

IE9 is set as default. ( I also have Firefox, but rarely used and not set as default.)
Windows Live Mail is set as default.
Start > Default Programs > Associate a file type or protocol with a pogram > MailTo ... Current Default is Windows Live Mail

In IE9, the " Send page by e-mail " and the " Send link by e-mail " are grayed out.
Same situation under Page.

Just did the virus scan with Malwarebytes..... clean.
Sfc /scannow ... no integrety violations.
Removed temp files etc etc with CCleaner.

Any solutions ?

I have figured out the answer.
The only one option I did not try turns out to be the answer.......

Start > Default Programs > Set program access and computer defaults > Custom > under Choose a default e-mail program, dot Windows Live Mail > OK
