Otherwise, try going to
Start>Run>Outlook.exe

Does Outlook Open?

If not try

Start>Run>Outlook.exe /safe

Does it open now.

If both of the above work fine, might just delete the Outlook Icon from your desktop and recreate it.
Go to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12 (If this is where Office 2007 is installed on this machine)
Find Outlook.exe, right click on it and Send To Desktop
