When opening Outlook 2007, it will hang at startup/spalsh screen. I will end task it, open another instance and asks to run in safe mode, same problem. I even created a new profile and still does same issue. Any ideas?

Disregard. I had asked customer to restart the computer but he said he had restarted it earlier in the morning, so I wasn't going to force him to restart again.  However, he restarted the computer on his own an voila, Outlook is working now.  Thank you.

Customer ended up doing as I had asked him to do before, which was restart computer and that fixed the problem.

Have you tried running outlook in safe mode?

Start > Run > Outlook.exe /safe
