google maps won't show map, some buttons don't work on other sites

after reload of win Vista everything works fine. but in about 3 months time I start to loose browser functionality. When I go to google maps it will start to load a very small portion of the map at the top of the screen and stop. no error messages. On other webpages the buttons that use to work no longer work. This happens for all browsers. I reloaded once to solve this problem. I would like to know what might be the cause. Has anyone else experienced this?

on a side note: is there anyway to change which mail application is used when clicking within the browser? Like when you click to email someone from a form.

I can answer the second part of your post
Go to search, by the start button
Type the word default
When you see default programs, click on it
Check the program that you want to be the default.
