I am using Windows Vista 32 bit and IE 9.0, and use AOL to send and recieve most of my e-mail. Alot of times, when I am on a website and click the "contact us" button, a Windows Live dialog box pops up and asks me to configure to send and receive e-mails. How can I use Aol as my main e-mail program and still be able to use Windows Live when I try to contact someone that uses it? Thanks.

You can set the default app using the Default Programs tool. See this guide: http://windows.microsoft.com/is-IS/windows-vista/Change-the-default-e-mail-program
