My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I use Office 2007 and use Outlook 2007 for my email.  when I tried to open the Oulook 2007, I got the following error :
"
Cannot start microsoft office outlook.  Cannot open the Outlook window.  The set of folders cannot be opened.  Errors have been detected in the file.
C:\Users\Jothy\appData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\Jegajothy_msn.ost.  Quit Outlook and all mail-enabled applications,
and then use the inbox repair tool (Scanpst.exe) to diagnose and repair errors in the file.
For more Information about the Inb ox repair tool, see Help.

OK Button
"
I tried to run Scanpst.exe, but looks like I do not have it on my pc, not sure how it disappeared or maybe it is stacked somewhere very deep.
I have Microsoft Security Essentials and also Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Premium)2.0./2.1012 for my virus protection.
Hope the Experts can please suggest how to fix this problem.  Thank u.

If you don´t change the path by default your Outlook profile C:\Users\yourUsername\Documents\Outlook Files\something.ost
