"Contact Us"... How?

When I try to use the "contact us" at the bottom of the page, the screen pops up that "a website wants to open a program on my computer". It also tell's me that this is outside the security systems "protection". I then am told to open a Windows Mail account. I don't want Windows Mail, so how goes?
Also, having difficulty navigating the system to get a picture to post, and I sure can't find a "Browse" button to click-on at the bottom of the "post composition page"
I will be the first to admit I'am no wizard at computers, but this is getting frustrating.
Anyone have any ideas or help?

Sorry you are having trouble - i sent you a PM.

My guess is that your security settings are set fairly high and causing this. Using the contact link requires that you send us an e-mail via your mail program.

I recently got a computer with Vista, and it seems even more security-minded than I am... I frequently get those messages on this machine, it really IS just a security setting.
As for the "open a Windows mail account", that is the computer telling you that you don't have a default email set up.

1. You can usually avoid the message by holding down the control key when you lick on the icon/link that intends to open a program. Or change your security setting.

2. Per Overlander63, make sure your email porgram is setup as the "default" email. For example, I use Thunderbird and under tools-options the first checkbox on that page makes it the default.
