Can't open links in Windows Live e-mail
I am at my wits end, I cannot open links in Windows Live, yesterday I could. I uninstalled new anti-virus and am not very good at file associations as I am NOT a techie type ( 68 years old ) but it is critical I get this fixed. Please can someone help in layman's terms?

Nothing is particularly easy, but it should be doable.
Click on the Start button lower left> In the search box at the bottom of the start menu type Default Programs> Press enter key on your keyboard> Click on Set your default programs at the top> Select your web browser from the list (Internet Explorer likely)> Click on Set this program as default> Click on OK
Now do this
Click on the Start button lower left> In the search box at the bottom of the start menu type Default Programs> Press enter key on your keyboard> Click on Set program access and computer defaults at the bottom (Click Continue if you get a User Account Control prompt)> Select the Custom option> Click on the double arrow to the right of Custom> Choose a default web browser, select your default browser (likely Internet Explorer)> Make sure a check is in the box next to Enable access to this program
Scroll down a bit to Choose a default e-mail program> Choose Use my current e-mail program> Again, make sure a check is in the box next to Enable access to this program
Scroll to the bottom and click OK
See if links are now working in mail again.
