MS Outlook not able to start up - Host Process (Rundll) Crashes
Posted on 2008-06-18
I was hoping someone could help me with a problem I've been having since yesterday afternoon. Yesterday morning I checked my email with MS Outlook without any problems. I shut down my laptop (Vista did not apply any updates when shutting down), hit the road, powered it back on, and tried to check my email again. I got the message:
"Microsoft Office Outlook has stopped working.
Windows is collecting more information about the problem. This might take several minutes."
I've been trying to get it working since yesterday. I haven't found anything useful on the net to help resolve this issue. I've gone as far as uninstalling the whole MS Office suite and reinstalling.
I have also noticed that if I go into Control Panel -> Mail -> Data Files (or Email Accounts) that it will report an error:
"Windows host process (Rundll32) has stopped working"
I went into the Event Viewer -> Application to see if I can find out more details and this is what it gives:
"Faulting application rundll32.exe, version 6.0.6000.16386, time stamp 0x4549b0e1, faulting module RPCRT4.dll, version 6.0.6001.18000, time stamp 0x4791a751, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x000a1a96, process id 0x%9, application start time 0x%10."
Every other application on the system is working just fine...
Can anyone help me figure out how to resolve this issue?
Thanks in advance!
