    Hi, I've had a problem for a while now. Every time I open Windows Mail up,
    or the news groups, I get a message saying Windows mail isn't my default
    mail program, and asks if I want it to be. I click yes every time, but I
    will still get this message when I open Windows Mail again the next day. Any

    Everything's works OK after I click this message. No other errors or

  2. Is there a check box on that dialog saying something like "Do not ask me
    this again"?

    If so, check it next time the message appears.

    Yep, tried that, but still it asks me every time! It seems to only do it
    once, every time I load up Vista, so I'm guessing a program is loading up,
    and changing me default mail program every time. But I can't think what
    program I've downloaded that'd cause this!!!

    Set it the way you want, then find the Reg key that relates to this
    setting and set the permissions so that no one can do anything but
    read it.
