Default Windows Live Mail

Does anyone know how I can disable windows live mail from my computer. Even when I click a picture in a folder to send, it goes through windows live mail and I just want to send it through my regular mail (outlook express) Any help would be appreciated.

Default Windows Live Mail

Greetings Marty,

Well you could just go into the Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel, click Windows
Live Essentials and uninstall Mail specifically, assuming you don't use it.

Alternatively (and if you do want to use it occassionly), you can reset Outlook Express to be
your default mail handler. Just pop open Internet Explorer (even if you use another
browser), click the Tools menu, then Internet Options, click the Programs tab and select it
as the e-mail handler.
