Mailto links are not working in Chrome2 Recommended Answers

Please describe your question/comment in detail (for example, steps to reproduce the problem):
When I click on mailto links in Chrome, it does not do anything. My default mail client is Windows Live Mail. In Firefox and Internet Explorer, mailto links would open a Windows Live Mail compose window properly, just not in Chrome. I've previously had an extension that made mailto links open in a Gmail window, but I've uninstalled that so that I can use an offline email client again (Windows Live Mail). And now mailto links just don't work in Chrome anymore.
I've tried reinstalling Chrome, used the normal version (non dev), used the Canary version, deleted my user data from the AppData folder, tried it in another user account on my computer; and nothing works.
From the above troubleshooting, seems like it's neither WIndows Live Mail, Chrome, or Windows' fault. haha
@daniel64 Yes I've tried that too.
