Greetings, asuleiman !

Delete the files in Temp folder and Temporary Internet Files folder.

1. Reset the Outlook toolbar template. With Outlook close, do a search for and rename outcmd.dat file. Restart Outlook and a fresh outcmd.dat file will be recreated.

2. Register an important Outlook file. Go to Start > Run and type regsvr32 OLE32.DLL
Do the same for INETCOMM.DLL

3. Disable Outlook Addins.  Go to Tools > Options > Other > Advanced Options > Addin Manager or COMM/Addins and disable the addins.

4. Start Outlook in Safe Mode.  Go to Start > Run and type

"c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Outlook.exe" /safe

Your path to Outlook.exe may be a little different.

5. Create a new Outlook profile.

6. Repair Outlook. With Outlook open, go to Help > Detect and Repair.

7. If no joy, reinstall Outlook.  Go to Add/Remove Programs and highlight Microsoft Office. Click on Install/Uninstall.  A menu will pop allowing you to choose repair or reinstall.

>> In what should i have to rename the outcmd.dat file. ?

you can rename outcmd.dat to outcmd.bak with Outlook close. When Outlook opens, it will create a new uncorrupted outcmd.dat file.

>> What i have to do when i have found the path outlook.exe ?

Type the path in Start > Run box  "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office 11\Outlook.exe" /safe

You may also want to look into using the MSN desktop search to find emails and documents on your machine. It works great. Did you also try War1's suggestion on the detect and repair option within outlook?
