You do not have exclusive access to the database at this time. If you proceed to make changes, you may not be able to save them later.

This error is happening when only one  user clicks the shortcut to the database. While trying to open the database he receives this error when someone else is in the database.

If no one is in the database he can open just fine without an error message.

It is happening with all databases stored on server if someone else has opened it first.

Checked file associations. Verified all settings are the same. I have reinstalled Office Professional and it worked correctly for about two weeks and then started to repeat the initial problem as stated above.

He can open the database while someone is in it if he launches Access first then uses File, Open but not from the shortcut or database on server.

Check the properties of the shortcut. It might be set to open the database exclusive.

The shortcut is residing on the server and 5 other users are able to access the database without receiving this error. It is only this pc.

The user that receives this error can click OK and eventually it will release and allow him to open the database

I had a similar problem at my workplace for a handful of users -- It appeared when they tried to access any Access database on the network.  In our case it turned out to be a problem with Acrobat Professional 7.0 trying to add features to the Access tool bar.  We had to alter the set-up of Acrobat 7.0 to remove the Access add-in.  This is a long-shot, but worth checking into.

And how to change the setup:

Are your users using a runtime version of access to open this database? Perhaps this one PC has a version of Access on it that is configured to open databases exclusive. This is on the Tools/Options window inside the database.

Turns out they had to reload his laptop. Once they configured the laptop correctly and his Office 2003 then he did not have any problems.
