"Send" option for webpages not using default Outlook Express

Whenever I try to email a webpage through Outlook Express by right clicking the mouse and choosing "Send", Hotmail's dialog box pops up rather than my default mail handler, Outlook Express. In Internet Option>Programs, Outlook Express is the Email choice.
However, under Outlook Express>Tools>Options>General, the Default Messaging Programs choices are grayed out, so I cannot choose Outlook Express as my default mail handler.

I can't resort to System Restore, as it was turned off months ago. There's a Microsoft fix available for this problem but it did not work.

I am using ePrompter in conjunction with Outlook Express. Can this be the reason for my problem? :|?

The first thing I would recommend is to turn on your system restore.

I'd get System Restore working since many repair items are no longer being offered and people are not diving into the nuts and bolts now that XP's SR actually works most of the time.
