Have you had any updates recently? You could try this:-

Open Internet Explorer click On the Tools menu, click Internet Options. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Reset. Click the Programs tab, and then click Set programs. Click Set Default Programs. Click to select Microsoft Outlook, and then click Set this program as default. Click OK, and then close the Default Programs dialog box. In the Internet Options dialog box, click the Programs tab, and then click Make default under Default web browser. Click OK.

It's just occurred to me -how are you using Outlook Express in Windows 7 as this OS does not have this capability. Are you using a virtual XP mode?

Just found out that Windows 7 does support older versions of Outlook. You say that you use firefox and cannot open internet explorer - outlook is in fact operated via internet explorer. If you go into all programmes you should find it there.

You could try this:-

You can try this also-- Open Set Program Access and Computer Defaults by clicking Start button clicking Default Programs clicking Set program access and computer defaults. Click Custom select your browser and click OK
