Outlook 2010 - Loading Profile...

Sean Clarke
Sean Clarke used Ask the Experts™

Just loaded on Microsoft Outlook 2010 64-bit onto my machine.

I had previously had office 2007 32-bit on so had to do a full deinstall and full reinstall of the new software.

I've had Outlook 2010 working once but it hung on me so had to reboot. Now when I restart Outlook 2010 it just sits there "Loading Profile" forever

I've left it for over an hour and it still sits there loading profile.

Can anyone help to work out what might be wrong with my profile or how I can check it or create a new one ???
