Personal Address Book won't open using Outlook 98 on Windows 2000

Hello,

Just logged onto my PC this morning and opened Outlook 98, only to be greeted with the following error message:-

"One or more changes you made could not be saved. Your personal address book has been opened for use by another computer. You will not be able to use your personal address book with this application until the other user closes the application currently using the personal address book."

I know for a fact that it has definitely not been opened elsewhere.

Any ideas on how to solve this?

I would offer more points but I've only got 80 left!

Many thanks for your help

Have you shared the Outlook.pst file.  Locate the PST file at C:\Documents & Settings\Your Name\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook.  It may be that this file has sharing set up?

Another question is do you login into a domain and standalone seperate?  i.e do you have two profiles.  This may cause a problem.
