"Sent to" mail recepient not working

I have a customer that has Windows 8.1 with Outlook 2007 and using ACT!.  When trying to right click on a picture and using the "send to" feature in Windows, it opens up a window and lets you choose the "size" of the attached picture but then won't ever open up Outlook to attach it.  I think it appears to be ACT! That's blocking it.  I also want to mention it's working on almost the exact same computer using both the same software, Outlook 2007 and ACT!.  I've verified the settings are correct/the same from that PC as well.  Both computers are running the same Norton software.

Things i've tried:
Default programs/file associations/Program Defaults are all correct
Registry edits for default mail program are correct
Performed an Outlook repair
Tried safe mode (stops at ACT! saying it can't find an address book, that's why i think it's ACT!)
It used to work when he originally bought the computer 4 months ago.

Anything new i haven't tried is appreciated! Thanks everyone!!!!

What happens when you run ACT?  Does it open the default address book?
And/or, what happens if you create a new user account and try it there?

It does, ACT opens up with out any problems at all.  It defaults to the correct address book.

Did you try another user account?
Or, why is ACT trying to open a different address book within Outlook?

There's only 1 user account on the computer, i can try and add another today.  He only has one address book configured within ACT.

I actually added a new user account to the computer and that allowed me to use the "sent to" feature again.  Not sure how to get HIS account working without completely setting up a new account with all of his data?  Any ideas?  Would Profile Wizard work for this?  Thanks guys.
