When I click on a link in an email I get this error message "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the set association control panel."
When I try to associate the HTTP and HTTPS to internet explorer 7 in vista the file association manager it will not let me change it, (it currently reads unknown application).:confused:

Try this:
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.

Strange, because that is obviously not true.
I don't now why your IE won't grab its protocols.

Do you have any other browsers installed that might be interfering with
IE?

Use the following newsgroup for questions or problems with IE6/7
news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsoft.public.internetexplorer.general

You can also get to the Internet Explorer newsgroups via this web site:
http://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/default.mspx
There select Internet Explorer

When I said the internet explorer had the message that "This program has all its defaults" it is a true statment, but when I went to choose defaults for the program I noticed that http and https had unknown aplication next to them. I then tried to associate those protocols (http/https) to internet explorer but it won't let me do it.

Did you not see Michael's response? This newsgroup is not the
best place for help with Internet Explorer.
