Everything was fine with one of our workstations and then all of sudden Outlook wouldn’t open.  Error message is:  “Cannot start Microsoft Outlook”.  Word and Excel work fine.  The last thing I did was install WordPerfect and the newest version of Adobe Acrobat.  I’ve tried uninstalling all of the Office programs and reinstalling.  I deleted the ost file and tried to start Outlook again.  Same error message.  Tried to set up a new mail profile…I get an error message that I don’t have enough memory/space to set up a new profile.  Tried a fix I found on the internet…same error message. I am using Outlook 2010

Try starting outlook in safe mode:

Start, run outlook /safe.  Does it open?  If so check the add-ins in Outlook and try disabling any newly added ones or enable one by one.

See this article on add-ons and how to disbale and enable:

The operator ended up fixing it herself.  She right clicked on the Outlook icon and selected troubleshooting and it fixed itself!!
