No connection from Windows Mail to IE

    No connection from Windows Mail to IE

    When I click a link on an incoming e mail, I get a window come up 'Internet
    Explorer not working'.
    In order to access the link I have to 'right click and copy' then paste into
    IE.
    Any ideas please how I can get direct access?

    Ensure that WM has all its defaults set correctly, either from the start
    menu>default programs, or from the control panel.

    Thanks for your response Steve.
    Checking my defaults under Windows Mail says 'This program has all it's
    defaults'.
    Looking under 'Choose defaults for this program' it shows:-
    Extension .eml Current default Windows mail
    Protocols Mail to Current default Windows mail
    Start Menu E Mail link Current default Windows mail

    Ensure that Internet Explorer has all its defaults:
    Open the Default Programs applet, which you can access either from
    the Start menu or via the Control Panel, then click the first item:
    "Set your default programs."
    After a few seconds, a list of programs comes up. Click on Internet Explorer.
    If it doesn't respond with "This program has all its defaults" then fix it by
    clicking on the option indicated by the first green arrow.

    Re: No connection from Windows Mail to IE

    Thank you for your reply Gary
    Yes IE responds with 'This program has all it's defaults'
    Specifically it shows Extensions - .htm .html .mht .mhtml .url
    Protocols - FTP HTTP HTTPS
    Start Menu - Internet Link
    All showing Internet Explorer as the current default.

    This article discusses your issue:
    http://www.winhelponline.com/article...ows-Vista.html
    However, I believe you have already tried the suggested
    corrective action. You might try resetting Internet Explorer:
    Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, Reset. Save your cookies first
    because that will delete them.

    Re: No connection from Windows Mail to IE

    Thanks again Gary.
    I've reset IE but the symptoms remain the same.
    It may help if I say the same condition applies if I activate 'Help and
    Support' and click on any of those live links, It comes up as 'Internet
    Explorer not working'

    Regards

    John King

    Re: No connection from Windows Mail to IE

    You've got me stumped. It sounds more like an IE problem
    than a mail problem, so you might post this last symptom in
    a newsgroup specializing in IE issues.
