Email association error
I have just updated from Vista to Windows 7 Home Premium.

Although everything seems OK on start up I am getting a message stating:

There is no email associated to perform the requested action. Please install an email program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel.

Can anyone tell me if there is a way to find out which program is creating the message and/or how I can fix it.

I use Gmail, and I have had a quick look at the Default Programs option but can't see a way to assign Gmail.

Thanks for help in advance.

Hi, this should help:-

Thanks, couldn't find mailto in the handlers list. Had already checked Default Programs in Control Panel and this showed mailto as Google Chrome.

As a result of a link for the article you directed me to, I have now added Chrome mailto extension to see if that works.
