I am getting so frustrated with this problem. I computer is clean checked by our office techie and updated twice daily and scanned twice daily. And it seems every time I do a M$ update I get the error when I click on a Link and it says "Default mail client is not properly installed."

I have Outlook Express 6.0 and Internet Explorer and windows xp sp2 installed.

Can any member help me?
I am not sure where to go to fix this and how to keep it permanently fixed?

I would appreciate all suggestions, thankyou.

Do you have another e-mail client or browser installed?
Couple things to try.
1. In IE, Click Tools>Internet Options>Programs Tab. Under E-mail, make sure OE is selected.
2. In OE, Click Tools>Options. On the "General" tab at the bottom, make sure OE is set as your default mail handler.
