Cannot start Outlook! Oh no!!

I use or used Outlook 2007. Upon turning on my laptop and then starting Outlook, I got the window: "Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window." How do I fix this? Windows 7 Ultimate, 4 year old Dell Inspiron 6400. Internet Explorer 8.

First, reboot your laptop and trying again. Next, try starting Outlook in safe mode "outlook.exe /safe"

Thank you all for your help. I did create a new profile and that saved me.

Did you try the /resetnsavpane option first - that generally corrects this issue when foe some reason Outlook decides to re-organise the layout of the navigation pane with invalid co-ordinates resulting in the infamous "Cannot open the Outlook window."  message

KCTS. No, I didn't try your suggestion because it was not showing when I left this site to try creating a new profile. If it ever happens again I will try the /resetnsavpane . Thanks
