Problems with clicking on email link on a web page

When I click on an email link on a web page I get this message: "Could not
perform this operation because the default mail client is not properly
installed." Windows Live Mail is the only email account I have. What should
I do? Thank you for your help.

It's not interested in Accounts, it is interested in a Mail program
installed on your PC.

Are you using the Windows Live Mail (WLM) program or the Hotmail
website? If in doubt, while reading an e-mail message do a Help
(ALT+H). In the menu the pops-up, the last item will say "About
Microsoft Windows Live Mail" if using the WLM program. If it says
"About Internet Explorer", you are using the website.

If using WLM program:

In Windows XP: Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, Set Program Access
and Defaults, Custom, Email and select Windows Live Mail, even if it
already seems to be the default.

In Vista/Win7: Control Panel, Programs, Default Programs, Set Program
Access and Computer defaults, Custom, Select Windows Live Mail, even if
it already seems to be the default.

Also in Win7: Control Panel, Programs, Set your Default Programs,
Windows Live Mail, Choose Defaults for this program
