Im a little confused should I delete the information in that folder. I also saw that if you delete the outlook.srs that should do the trick.

OK I was able to go into the registry and find the location of the Temporary Internet Filles\OLK33C\ However when I went to browse for it, I couldn;t find it. I also did a search for the OLK33C folder or file and the Temporary Internet Files and nothing came up.

You have to go to folder options in explorer and tell it to show hidden and protected operating system files.
What version of Windows?
What version of Office?
Are you in an office and logging in to a domain?

Did you enable hidden and protected files so you could delete that folder?
Have you?
And, what error message(s) do you get?

You should be able to see the OLK33C folder when you just copy the path from registry then click Start -> Run, paste the path and click OK. Furthermore do you have the latest service pack and office updates applied on that machine?
