    When I have a link in my Windows Live Mail and I click on it, I get a drop down saying this:

    "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program, or if one is already installed, create an association in the default programs control panel."
    "
    can someone tell me what to do? I go to "Start" and "Default Programs" but don't know what to do from there. Thanks.

    I don't know the extension. All I know is when I get email with a link in the mail. When I click the link, Instead of going to the url of the link I get. "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program, or if one is already installed, create an association in the default programs control panel." I went to default programs and the is all kinds of ext. under one option. I am very confused.

    Give us a sample link. Sometimes error messages are extremely misleading.
