Windows 7: Can't get e-mail to work

Can't get e-mail to work

When I click on most e-mails (like craigslist) a yellow sign pops up and says; Internat Explorer Security, a website wants to open content-allow? Then a pop-up says Email; No E-mail program is associated with this etc, etc etc. I downloaded Windows Live E-mail program and still have my att/yahoo e-mail working fine. I did restart and still nothing.

Hello 546 Inspiron,
Download and install Thunderbird. See if that solves your problem.
