microsoft outlook - how can i get rid of this?

  bigdavey 21:23 12 Oct 09

i have never in my life used outlook but it has crept into my internet settings somehow and now every time i click a hyperlink "contact", or "email", i get this ridiculous outlook setup process which i can't even complete if i try!!
i am assuming it is something to do with my defalt mail client for explorer or some such...

please can someone help me be rid of this?

i am running windows vista btw. soon i suspect i won't be able to post to this forum because of this hideous outlook nonsense!!

thanks for any help!

Open Internet Explorer and go to Tools, Internet Options, Programs tab, and set your default email program there.

Eric10 could you be a bit more specific, in the programs tab i can find default programmes but i can't set any default mail client, there isn't an option there...please help.

To change the default e-mail program in Vista:

1. Click Start, Default Programs, and click Set program access and computer defaults.
2. Type in your administrator password if prompted.
3. Click Custom under Choose a configuration.
4. Under Choose a default e-mail program, select the program you want to set as the default.
5. Click OK.
