Windows Live Mail not accepted as default email client

Hi, I am running a new install of Win 7/64 with AVG. I went into default programs, I was given the option of Office Outlook, or Windows Live Mail, I ticked the latter,but as I did this the option to tick "enable access to this program"is greyed out. Nevertheless I clicked on OK, but when I go back in the biox marked as "use my current email program" is ticked, in other words the tick on Windows Live Mail is not maintained.

I checked the registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > Software > Clients > Mail and correctly states that WLM is the default client.

However when I scan a page to email, it tries to send via MS Outlook. I do have Office 2007 installed but don't use MS Outlook.

Any suggestions on how to resolve?
