try some of these switches for outlook.exe

/cleanprofile Removes invalid profile keys and recreates default registry keys where applicable.
/cleanpst Launches Outlook with a clean Personal Folders file (.pst)
/cleanrules Starts Outlook and deletes client- and server-based rules.
/cleansubscriptions Deletes the subscription messages and properties for subscription features.
/cleanviews
/firstrun Starts Outlook as if it were run for the first time.
/noextensions Starts Outlook with extensions turned off, but listed in the Add-In Manager.

Hi
Try starting Outlook with switch /resetnavpane
the switch does the following.
"Clears and regenerates the Navigation Pane for the current profile."
