Click Start then Run then type regedit and press enter
Navigate to HKEY_ CURRENT_USER\Software\ Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook
Right click on that Outlook key and select New --> Expandable String Value
Name the new value ForcePSTPath
Double click the ForcePSTPath value and change it to the default path which should be...
%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

You will need to make this change logged in as the user that is being affected.
