Windows 7: There was a problem sending the command to

There was a problem sending the command to

Hi,

New to the forums here. Recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate (as an upgrade).

The two main problems i'm having is

1. Whenever i go to hotmail. Hotmail just freezes and i can't do anything.

2. Because of the above problem i decided to instal Windows Live Mail on the laptop and use this. The mail system works fine, but if i click a link. It opens up IE 8 (blank page) and an error pops up.

The web address is on the transparent part of the error box. The error itself says "there was a problem sending the command to the program."

It has happened a few times and i haven't really taken much notice before as it didn't bother me. But its really starting to bug me because of my emails.

By the looks of things it only happening if its one program trying to open an other program (if that makes any sense).

Please help on either or both problems as its really annoying.

Thanks in advance.

There was a problem sending the command to the program.
Most of my Windows Live Mail contains embedded links. When I click on those links, I expect the URL there to be transferred to Firefox. Instead, I get a cryptic message from Windows Live Mail, "There was a problem sending the command to the program." Is there some simple trick that fixes this?
