Hi All:
I have a new build. Loaded Windows 7, Home Premium 64 bit. It runs OK except when I click on the mail icon I get the following error message for Windows Internet Explorer: "Could not perform this operation because the default mail client is not properly installed." I reloaded it with no help. The software is an OEM builders version so Microsoft wouldn't help me with a fix. Hope you can here.TIA

Your OS was telling you that you didn't have a default email client configured. What you did by installing Thunderbird was create a default email client.

Why dont you download and install `mozilla Thunderbird` its miles better than the MS one

Which MS 'one' would that be, what does 'better' mean, and by what metrics are you using to gauge the difference?
