Did you upgrade to this version? Do you use Exchange?

If you upgraded to Outlook 2007 I would recommend deleting and recreating your profile. If you're not on exchange (i.e. you're using a pst file for your email), I would import the items from the old pst file to the new file.

I am not using Exchange and did not upgrade to Outlook 2007.  I have used it for months without
any problems until now

I have found that I can start and use Outlook in Safe Mode, but without safe mode it continues to crash.

Ahhh, this sounds like an add-in problem then.

Tools -> Trust Center -> Add-ins

Select Com Add-ins and click Go. Uncheck those that are not necessary and see if that solves the problem.

I unchecked everything that allowed me to do so, and the remaining addins are as in enclosed picture.

This did not have the desired effect, however.

You may want to try uninstalling the Windows Search (or downloading version 4 if you're running 3). If it runs will in Safe Mode that almost always suggests that an add-in of some kind is causing the problem.

Tried to download Search version 4.   Installer told me this upgrade does not apply to my system.
Because it is Windows Vista?

This issue occurs when the value of the PONT_STRING registry entry is incorrect.

To work around this issue, follow these steps:
Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK.
In Registry Editor, locate and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Options\General
In the right pane, right-click the Security Zone registry entry, and then click Delete.
Repeat step 3 for the following registry entries:
1. PONT_STRING
2. BodyEditor
3. WarnDelete
Exit Registry Editor.

Really? 500 points and we're assuming it's a registry thing? From my experience the PONT_STRING issue usually occurs following an upgrade, which this user did not do. I would appreciate a split at least.
