Outlook 98/2000 -
Open up outlook go to Tools-Options-Mail Services (TAB)- under Startup Settings you can dot prompt for a profile to be used or always use this profile.
Also, go to: Start button- Settings- Control Panel- Mail- Show Profiles- select When starting Microsoft Outlook, Use this Profile: select the profile you want.

Outlook 2002 or XP
Go to: Start button- Settings- Control Panel- Show Profiles- I think that it gives the option where you can dot prompt for a profile to be used or always use this profile

What version of Outlook are you using?  Is the prompt for a profile when you start Outlook, or when you start Windows?

yes, all of this was tried in the first place.  it turned out to be a bad image.  reimageing was a faster solution than actually trying to fix it.  I will probably delete this question in a few days.

I'm accepting this comment as an answer because that's really what you would do (if your image is not corrupt as mine was).  I don't want to delete this question because it may help someone out.

That's a pretty magnanimus decision - saving the solution  for posterity, but why the "B" grade to Jeffh?

It's not like it's cheaper for you than an "A".  The guy made a suggestion to try to help you, and you didn't even acknowledge it until a month later.
