My PC just hang .. so I shut it down by pressing the power on button for 10 seconds.

When I started my PC again I wanted to open Microsoft Office Outlook but it shows me this error: "Kan Microsoft Office Outlook niet starten. Kan het Outlook-venster niet openen", which is Dutch for "Unable to open the Outlook window".

I deleted my OST and it tried to get it back from the server (it actually did) but it still does not work!

    Have you tried running a repair on MS Office? Go into add/remove programs in your control panel, and select Change or Uninstall next to Microsoft Office. The installer will open up and give you the option to repair. Not a guaranteed fix, but I'd try that first. It will look for any problems with your installation and attempt to fix them.

    I solved the problem by removing the OST again, then I downloaded it again from the Exchange server. After that I used the "SCANOST.EXE" tool in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12!

    After that I fired up outlook again, the computer rattled for 2 minutes and .. I have my mail back!
