Windows 7: Win 7 turns my email client into a dizzying parade of trash

Win 7 turns my email client into a dizzying parade of trash

I use eM Client for my email, and it has been remarkably stable. But recently I've been getting crashes, followed by a wild parade of unclosed windows (like what used to happen when you won at Solitare--the open windows flash across the screen until it's completely full of trash). When this happens, I get a message from Windows 7: "...could not perform this operation because the default mail client is not properly installed. Internet Explorer."
I have checked my default programs, and eM Client is correctly listed there, and presumably correctly installed. I'm asking here, at the Windows 7 forum, because this seems like a Win 7 problem. If I'm wrong, please let me know. Thanks. --Fred Powledge.

Hi Fred, welcome to 7F! :)

Does this happen in Safe Mode? Use option one, if you've never ran in safe mode be prepared to see your desktop messed up a bit with your icons moved around, but this is normal and you can move them around to suit you, and when you boot back normally they'll go back to what your used to.

If it does or doesn't happen, run your anti-virus/malware product while in safe mode and see if it catches anything.

Hello. Simple email client, plx!
So I happily installed Windows 7 Pro on my laptop and desktop. I have used GMail for about two years now and its nice, but I'd like to utilize Outlook and Office and GMail doesn't interface well (AT ALL!) with Outlook. What I'm looking for is a simple, clean, small, but reliable and safe email...

Email Client
I was just curious what the email client of choice is with Win7 since it does not come with one. I am leaning toward Thunderbird. I have to have the ability to have two email addresses. From my understanding if you use Windows Live Mail, you must actually go into the Control Panel and change...
