Issue with opening link to default email program

When click on an email link in Internet Explorer, it does not open the default email program, but a new page opens up asking to add an email account instead.   Can this be fixed so that the default email program is opened?

Sounds like the default mailto: protocol has been modified, can you check what the mailto: is associated with?

Search for "Default Programs" in the Start Menu and check there
