Default Interesting IE Issue

When my user hits the "Mailto:" on any site.
It automatically brings up outlook express.
I have set the outlook in the program list via .adm account.
All aspects of the normal fix for this have been covered ex:
repush/repairing.
nothing is working.

any ideas ?

the problem with uninstalling a program on my network is that the GPO here is brutal. Anything missing on startup that is in his GP will propagate back to the client during logon.

I hide various programs in this manner for different reasons to make them inaccessable
