This has occurred to me before, the above error in respect of me clicking on a Support Link as an example and I get a message that "Could not perform this operation b/c the default mail client is not properly registered.

I did some googling on the "Error", but do not really understand the issue. Why can't I click on a Link and reach the customer support as an example for one of the programs that I use???

Is there a workaround this or have I got a setting wrong.

I would appreciate the words of wisdom from this great forum.

BTW, I am not sure if this is where I post this??? For best results in responses.

Thankyou, as this Error is becoming frustrating to say the least!!

Thankyou and cheers!!

In Internet Explorer, go to:

Tools > Internet Options > Programs tab

Next to: Email what program is listed, and is this the main program you use to get your emails?

I did finally figure this out as I had to go in and change my "email" to another within the options and click apply and then go back in the drop down menu and in the "email" change it to OE and apply and now all of the "cannot persorm this operation b/c the default client is not properly installed" Error has stopped.

Thought that I should post for other members benefit in the event the same problem is encountered.

Cheers.
