    I installed Win 7 x64 build 7100 and it keeps wanting to open the mail client. I gave it my email address and it downloaded my mail. But I can't use Windows because it keeps opening and getting focus. I even try to open menus to look at options and since it keeps restarting itself every couple of seconds, I can't even do that. I just installed it today. I formatted the hard drive and installed Windows 7 and with no other software installed, as soon as I opened IE to browse, it started repeatedly complaining that I didn't have a mail client. Then after I installed one, now it keeps opening it.

    Anyone have an answer?

    Have you tried setting your new mail client as default?
