Microsoft Outlook 2003 will not start in regular mode or in Safe Mode.  I double check that outlook.exe is not running, then click on any of the shortcuts (even launching directly from the outlook.exe does not help) outlook.exe will appear in the Task Manager but the program never loads (no splash screen, no errors).  If you end task the instance that's running then try to run it again it will display the safe mode option but it behaves the exact same way.  I have logged in as a different user on this PC and Outlook works fine.  I have tried to remove the users Outlook profile but even the Control Panel applet will not respond.

Any ideas?  I'm running out of hair!
