Outlook 2007 data file * was not closed properly

Hi,

We have a user running Win7 Professional (32-bit) with Outlook 2007. I believe every time the user either shuts down, or logs off (The problem happens infrequently) he is prompted with the error: "The data file * was not closed properly. The file is being checked for errors." This data file in question is the users mailbox, not a .PST file. We have tried deleting and creating a new profile, deleting said OST, etc. and this solves the problem for a few days or so, until it comes up again.

Any ideas?

I object!  I clearly gave this user The link to the instructions to run SCANPST. I also Told this user that SCANPST would work for OST files as well. Look at  35281328
How can this user accept his own solution when I intially brought it to his attention that scanpst could be used on OST files. The user acknowlege it by stating "A ScanPST.exe. solved this problem. I appreciate the help"

 I should be awarded my points!
