Hi All Expert,

Good Day.

I have a user in which the outlook stuck at loading profile, and there is no error coming out. These are the method I have tried.

- Repair the whole Microsoft office.

- Remove outlook profile and re-add but when everything is done on the email configure page you click on next, it will hang and not responding even when you wait for an hour, whether it's existing email or new mail.

- Login to administrator account and use the user pst and it has no issue, since the profile can be loaded mean the pst file is not damaged.

- Though the windows profile is damaged I deleted the user windows profile and re-add but still same.

User is on Windows 7 64 bit and outlook 2010

Appreciate if anyone had this knowledge can assist me on.

Thanks!

from the command line try:

outlook.exe /safe:3

This should start outlook with all the plugins disabled to see if it is an add on issue

Have you tried setting up the user on a different workstation?  If it works then we know it's something specific to that user's PC and not related to his Exchange account.

Hi xchiazyx,

Can you also check the PST file that it's set with the right permissions for the user or set the permission to EVERYONE?  If it works without issues in admin then it sounded like issue with permission of the file.

Sorry forgetting to close the case, the pst was damaged and beyond repair, cannot use it as default to load with the profile, I created a new pst and drag all the folder and mail into it. Thank all for the kind advice.
