I have a PC running windows 7 with office 2013.
Outlook is set as the default mail client, but when ever I open a pdf, it get this error message.

"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?

Did you mean to ask something different here, about adobe reader, perhaps?

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

When did the problem occur? A day or two?  If so, restore your computer to an earlier time (recommended way: boot up in safe mode with command prompt and type rstrui.exe to restore). This'd be the quickest and the easiest way.

So, you are saying the suggestions made in the earlier thread did not help?
It would have been more productive for you and everyone who responded to the earlier thread to tell us which of the earlier suggestions did not work assuming you did try them.

"It's an issue with adobe" .  Why do you say that?

I tried both posts you mentioned, but they did not help.

I think I might just have to wipe the PC and reformat and install from scratch, as it's slowing down as well.

Well, try a repair install first.

you mean a repair on the OS?  Just to install the OS over itself, right?
