push ctrl alt del.

select the processes tab.

find the name that says outlook.exe.

select it, then push "end process"

exit task mgr and reboot outlook. it should open now.

Hi Guys,
Ok tried both and still not working.
I have my updates set to manual, so i have not run updates in a few weeks.
I am running Kaspersky Internet Securoity 2011, and it has been fine for months with no problems.
I really want to try and avoid reloading office

thanks

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

I had this problem before but with other applications.  Perhaps the windows is set to start-up in a minimize format. (or your normal format is shrank too small)

- You can find the Outlook Shortcut that you click to open (eg. start menu > All Programs > Microsoft Office > Microsoft Outlook 2010.  > right click > Properties
- In the "Short Cut" tab > "Run" drop-down box , Choose "Maximize"
- Then next time you open Outlook from that shortcut, it should maximize it.

You can do something like this while your Outlook opened.

If you see Outlook window in system bar (near to "Start" button), right click of mouse and choose "Maximize" or "Restore"
