Default email program change.

Gooday all. I see a similar situation in another post but thought I should start my own.
If I am on a site and for some reason it asks me to email someone, when I click on email, Outlook pops up. I have a Home & Student suite of MS applications and Outlook is only in trial version on this CD, so now no longer works. I have tried the fixes mentioned in another post here but it did not work for me. Any help appreciated. James

Many thanks Thrash Zone. The google download one didn't work but just changing the setting in Firefox did the trick.
