Whenever a web site offers an email contact & I click on it, Outlook runs but I don't use it.
How do I get the system to use my normal Hotmail email as default

These website links are specifically used to open your computers e-mail client (Outlook) and use the default e-mail address (Which you don`t have!) - they cannot open a hotmail web based browser. The answer is to set up hotmail in Outlook but this may cost. The alternative is to set up a new e-mail address using your ISP`s mailbox and use that for this purpose.

To make Windows Live Hotmail your default open IE - go to Tools - Internet Options - Programs tab and against the Email drop-down menu select Windows Live Hotmail. Click Apply and OK.
