Clicking on email hyperlinks does not work

#1
I've been experiencing trouble primarily with my email. Today after I downloaded Windows Live Mail 2011 I can now see images in my emails again. However when I click on a hyperlink in an email it does not work. Here's the message I get.

This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set Associations control panel. My system is Windows Vista Home Basic. I can find the Set Associations, but I am unable to resolve this myself. It has been driving me nuts. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

1. Make sure your WLM 2011 is your default e-mail client.

2. Make sure your Internet Explorer has all its defaults.

Start button > Default Programs > Set Your Default programs > left column, click Internet Explorer. Does it say " This program has all its defaults " ?
If no, click Choose Defaults for this program > put a checkmark on all entries under the list > click Save

P.S. I am the same t-4-2 that appeared in the Microsoft Answers link.

- HELLO - Just a gigantic "THANK YOU" to t-4-2 for listing that easy helping hand to we fellow humans.
I have been to approx' 35 different web sites looking for this answer and everything was off-the-track
just enough so it would not work. (specific operating system only, specific for internet explorer only
(yes this worked for firefox!), and of course tons of L O N G directions that not only did not work, but were
very dangerous to someone that does not know exactly what they were doing.
So many people have 1 answer that worked one time for one person, so they add it thinking they sound like
some great mind or super hacker. Worse yet, they type it out in a way where they try to sound/appear like they
are a... 'super hacker' that doesn't have time to use full words or descriptions. (Example: "This is such an easy fix;
if you os is npr then just ex: run ~ log * mircobrewer error_tandy (make sure to use rinse cycle), reboot in safe,
f4 f8 - should be there - if not kill your os be a Man and revamp with Linux- geesh. I mean this is so easy!")
(know what i mean?) - - - Most (MOST) of the humans searching for these directions are not code readers,
hackerz, or even quite savvy with computers - - so again, a Gigantic 'thank you!' to t-4-2 for giving a straight
to the point answer with clear directions. This American will be singing the Canadian National Anthem today
in praise of your ilks kindness and smarts. Yeah, that's right I typed that! :)
Be well. love, Love, LOVE.
