Just Check following setting is there:
   1.  On the Tools menu in Office Outlook, click Options, and then click the Other tab.
   2. Under General, select the Make Outlook the default program for E-mail, Contacts, and Calendar check box.

I hope this helps,

Obviously the computer has an issue. I would try another computer, or log into the computer with another account.  You may need to repair or reinstall office to get them to see each other correctly.
