Hi,

I am running Internet Explorer 10 so when you go to set defaults, it sends you to Windows Default programs.

I have repaired Outlook 2010, Even rebuilt the machine and did a completely fresh install of Windows 7. The machine is pretty much a Vanilla build Windows 7 with Office 2010 Pro and it still does it.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks for the video, I was really hopeful that would work but it didn't

I setup Choose a default e-mail program:
Microsoft Outlook, pressed OK. I get this bar saying setting default Outlook

Then I go back into SPAD and it has changed back to Use my current e-mail program and I am still getting the message which I have also attached.

Hi,

I get the error as soon as my computer starts or if I open Outlook.

If I click a mailto link, it opens outlook as it should.

I worked it out.

Office 2010 64bit running 32bit addins. In my case HP TRIM.

Uninstalled Office 2010 64 and installed 32 and all is good.
