I have a user printing out emails from Outlook and other programs that is scaling down and not using the entire page. It started today and nothing new was installed. It only happens on two printers (Dell & Adobe PDF). Running Windows 7. Can find anything on it.

Bring up Devices and Printers, right click on one of the printer drivers, select printer properties, click the advanced tab, click printing defaults and check the settings there to see if scaling of some sort is set up to take place.

If not, check to see if the drivers have been automatically updated by Windows Updates. Bring up Windows Update and click View Update History to check.

Adobe may have also autoinstalled some update, though it'd be unusual for Adobe not to ask for confirmation before running installer.

You say this just started.  Run a System Restore from a date before the problem occurred.

I am not sure what you mean by scaling down.  Not fitting the paper page?  Click File|Print Preview.  Do you see the content to be printed as filling the virtual page?  If not look at the right hane dropdown box in the Print Preview menu bar.  Change the settings (percentages) to see what will fill out the page.  Now try printing.
