Go into the Control Panel, click on Default Programs, then click on the bottom link to "set program access and computer default". You'll be able to set Windows Live Mail as your default email program in 'custom'

When you get a chance you should do a superior clean install with the Upgrade Kit Win7 DVD to overcome the corruption imported from Vista and remaining on the HD from now-useless HP utility and recovery partitions.

Back up your files and a Win7 backup image of your HDD, gather your program installers, then wipe the HD for cleanest install: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

The DVD is nearly driver complete with newer arriving quickly via optional Windows Updates. Any missing drivers can then be found on your HP drivers/apps disk or on the Support DOwnloads webpage for your model computer.

You can also extract favorite apps like Works from your HP upgrade disks using this method: HP 3rd Party Software After Clean Win 7 Install

windows 7

Ye i was going to do a clean wipe but i didnt as it saved a lot of time as all of the pgorammes and files remained on the laptop,

In the end i found out it would have been much more quicker if i did do a fresh full install rather than upgrading it, the time it took the files to move over took almost and hour lmao,

Thanks for all of your help
