One of our end user has Outlook issue.
When I click on MSoulook 2010 either from shortcut or going to MSOutlook.exe it will launch then the icon stays in task bar without opening the Outlook.
I can only open it using Outlook.exe/safe Or by pressing Shift+Click .

I removed the profile, then recreated it, and the issue still on
I disabled the add-ins and restart outlook , the issue still on
repaired MS office and restarted the PC , the issue still on
uninstalled/reinstalled MSoffice, and the issue still on

The only thing that I have not tried was to put user in different PC and open Outlook, to see if the problem is the other PC, but we do not have a PC available.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

You can log in as an administrator on the PC. Not sure what version of Windows they have, but assuming Windows 7 or Windows 8, you can navigate to C:\Users and rename there folder to user.old. Then log back in as the user and they will get a blank, brand new profile. See if the Outlook problems persist. If not great. Then you can manually copy any user data from user.old folder to their new folder under C:\Users.

Thanks... I tried it on my computer...I did not rename the existing to username.old, I forgot it, so I had to redo a lot of things manually.
