PDC went down on the domain.  One user's PST file was stored on that server.  I was able to recover the file but cannot change/setup new profile for that user as i kept getting error 0x80070574.  
I then uninstalled Office 2010 and reinstalled, no help.  I manually went through the registry of the workstation to remove references to the old profiles.  Now while setting up a new profile, I am able to enter all of the info for the pop3 account.  As soon as it connects to the email server and verifies that it is setup right I get an error 0x80070043 (I no longer get the other error) and therefore will not let me finish setting up the profile.

Have you tried running the scanpst.exe tool located in c:\program files\microsoft office\14\ against the pst file as it could be corrupted. Also if it still gives you the error after running the scan pst tool try specifying a new default mail location other than that pst file. You can setup a new pst and set it as the default location and then map up the old one after you get the account setup.

It doesn't allow me to get that far.  If I try to use an existing data file, nothing happens, it won't allow me to browse for it or anything.  Nor will it setup a new file.  Running Scanpst did not help either.

You can try to go into c:\users\<user profile>\AppData and remove the outlook folders under Local and Roaming folders and then try to create the profile. If that doesn't work might I suggest re-creating the users window profile or try to setup the account on a new windows profile to see if it might be due to corruption on the current windows user profile somewhere.
