Can't Connect To Exchange With Outlook 2010 and Windows 7

So I appear to have a common problem ,but from what I found online, there isn't much of a fix that works for everyone. I'm using Exchange and when I add the exchange account on the Outlook 2010 on Windows 7 PC, it adds the account fine.

However, when I start Outlook I get this message:

"Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window.
The set of folders cannot be opened. You must connect to Microsoft
Exchange with the current profile before you can synchronize your
folders with your offline folder file."

Help would be greatly appreciated.
