Windows 7: Send attachment make Eudora default

Windows 7 64 bit
Send attachment make Eudora default

Running Windows 7 (64 bit), Eudora, Microsoft Office 2003 (Outlook is installed but I do not use Outlook as my email client)

I want to attach a file to an email in Eudora by positioning mouse over a picture or a pdf file then right click mouse, click "send to", click "mail recipient". However, Outlook opens up and my attachment is placed in Outlook. Eudora is my default email program so why isn't Eudora receiving the attachment.

When I close Outlook and try again I get message "Microsoft Office Outlook. A dialog box is open. Close it and try again." I went to tools, options, advanced options, Com Add-ins, and unchecked the add-ons but this does not help.

I am unable to uninstall just Outlook (Excel and Word also uninstall with it). When I click control panel, uninstall, Microsoft Office the "change" option does not appear. Only Uninstall (as in uninstall the entire Office program) appears. So uninstalling Outlook is not an option.

On my old Windows XP computer , I had the same software installed (Eudora and Ooutlook)and attaching files to Eudora worked perfectly.

Start Menu/Default Programs/"Set Program Access and Computer Defaults". In the next window choose "custom" and instead of keeping at at "current" specfically check off the name of the program(s) you want as the default(s). Click "ok" at the bottom. If that doesn't fix it right away it may fix it after rebooting.
