    When I try to click on a link within an email in Windows Mail, I get the following error message.

    "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set Associations control panel."

    Whatever your Web browser is, make sure it's set as the "default" browser.

    For Internet Explorer, click Tools > Internet Options > Programs.

    For Firefox, click Tools > Options > Advanced > General.

    Under System Defaults, click Make Firefox the default browser.
