Error open Outlook 2007 on Windows XP Pro - SP3 after running registry clean with Uniblue...
Posted on 2008-10-22
I lost my XP pro profile Sunday. I was able to do a system restore to a point before that and everything came back except that Outlook 2007 Pro will not start.
Outlook will appear to be loading and then right as it completes the dialog box that says Outlook has encountered a problem and will exit comes up.
If the restart Outlook checkbox is checked it will end, restart, and get the same error in the same place.
I have repaired Outlook, and uninstalled and re-installed it from the OEM media on a Dell Latitude D830.
After re-installing it did the same thing.
So I removed all the .pst files thinking it was a corrupt file and with no .pst files in the Outlook .pst file directory it gets the same error in the same place.
The only thing i can think of is either my XP profile is still messed up or there is something corrupted in the OS.
I also ran SFC /scannow from a cmd prompt and still get the same error in the same place.
Was going to attempt to restore the registry to before it was cleaned and if that does not work am going to format the hard drive and start over.
It usually takes me about 2 days to get everything back when I do this so any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
