Error: No associated application could be found?

Upgraded to Mountain Lion yesterday. When getting an e-mail that has a link in it to click on, I get the following message, Error, no associated application could be found. Any idea what is happening with this, and how can I fix it? Thanks for the help. John

What is the extension on the file? It sounds like you don't have whatever app is required to view the file.

For example, if someone sends you a file called reports.xls (an Excel spreadsheet file) you would need Excel or Apple Numbers or some such app to view the spreadsheet.

I think I misunderstood. You mean it is an HTML link to web page? Open Safari and in preferences / general tab see if Safari is set as the default browser.
