Can someone help me figure this out, out of the sudden MS Outlook 2011 is asking to rebuild the database once you try to open it. I have rebuilt the database twice and it won't open, the database utility screen opens every time I click on Outlook.

Go to Applications folder inside that is another folder called Utilities inside that is an application called Disk Utility. Double click on that and when it opens you will see your hard drive on the left. Highlight your hard drive and click on Verify Disk on the right. If that is OK and only if that is OK click on Repair Permissions. If Verify Disk is not OK try to Repair. If Repair is successful then Repair Permissions
