Mailto: link is not opening my default email program

This fix is done in IE but the fix will result in all browsers (Chrome, etc.) being fixed.

In IE go to Tools > Internet Options > Set Programs > Set program access and computer defaults > Custom (and select the downward facing chevrons to the right of "Custom" > Windows Mail (under Choose a default e-mail program).

To test:
Click Start -> Run and type "" (without the quotation marks) in the "Open" box.  This replicates what happens when you click on an e-mail link on a web page.
