Have you recently uninstalled Symantec Antivirus? If so it has left a file entry behind. Goto run and type in the box without the quotes "userprofile" next do a search for outcmd.dat in the box that pops up. If you find it delete it (make sure outlook is closed otherwise it won't work) restart outlook!

To find and delete copies of Extend.dat
Exit Outlook if the program is open.
Confirm that Windows is set to show hidden and system folders.
On the Windows taskbar, click Start > Search > For Files or Folders.
Under "Search for files or folders named," type the following text:

extend.dat

Click Search Now.
Wait for the search to finish.
Delete all copies of the Extend.dat file.
Restart the computer.

If a Group Policy that hides system files is in effect, you may not find the Extend.dat file when you search or browse, even after you set Windows to show all files. If you do not find any copies of the Extend.dat file, use a command prompt to delete the file(s).

To find and delete copies of Extend.dat from a command prompt
Exit Outlook if the program is open.
On the Windows taskbar, click Start > Run.
In the Open box, type cmd and then click OK.
At the command prompt type the following command and then press Enter:

cd %appdata%


The prompt should show the Application Data folder for the current local user.
If the command does not work, use the cd command with the full path to the current local user's Application Data folder. For example:

cd "C:\Documents and Settings\<local_user>\Local Settings\Application Data"

where <local_user> is the name of the current local user.

Type cd microsoft\outlook and then press Enter.

Type del extend.dat and then press Enter.
Delete the Extend.dat file for every user local account on the computer.
Restart the computer.
