Outlook 2007 startup problems

My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit, and I use Offic e 2007.  Whenever outlook starts, it seems to freeze, and I am unable to click on any where or the buttons, and finally I have to load the taskmanager and end the program.  I tried starting  outlook in the safe mode, pressing the control key down and loading outlook.  Still the same problem.  This happened after I had installed Thunderbird trying to use it as a standby application.  Can the Experts please suggest a sequence of steps to fix this problem.  I will uninstall Thunderbird to start with.
Thank u.

Start, Control Panel, Mail, Show Profiles, Add.  Not knowing your exact mail setup can't help from here but you should be able to figure it out based on the exiting profile you have.
