Microsoft Office Outlook Error

I have a user running win7.  Office 2013 is installed.  For some strange reason, this error started popping up:

"Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request.  Please run Microsoft Outlook and set it as the default mail client."

Any idea how to fix this?

Try:

(1) Ensure (Control Panel and Default Programs) that Outlook 2013 is set as your default program for mail.

(2) Repair your Office 2013 installation (Control Panel, Program and Features, Select Office 2013 and Change).

Also merely restoring the PC to an earlier time may suffice (Recommend: Safe mode with command prompt and "rstrui.exe" to restore).

Uninstall and reinstall any office products and then set up mail profile again.

Make sure Outlook is set as default email programe in Internet options

this is not an outlook problem.  It's an issue with adobe.  I did a repair, same error message.
I set outlook as the default mail client, same issue.

So when I open a PDF document, i get the same error, with outlook closed, so I think it's something with adobe.  I even uninstalled and reinstalled adobe reader, still same issue.

Not sure how to proceed.

Uninstall adobe using Revo Uninstaller (free). Restart. Reinstall adobe.

I uninstalled and reinstalled the program, if that didn't do it, then do you think a repair would fix it?

Ok time to start over.

Lets run msconfig

from services tab  hide all Microsoft services then disable all others

from startup tab hide all

restart see if problem goes away.

IF it does then something is services or startup is conflicting.

my guess is startup but lets start back to basics.
