    Hi,

    Please help. I have seen a few post about this error but nothing I have tried has helped.

    Each time I open outlook a balloon pops up my task bar with the following message:

    Microsoft Office Outlook
    A data file did not close properly the last time it was used and is being
    checked for problems. Performance might be affected while the check is in
    progress.

    Then the message quickly dissapears before you can even read it properly and outlook closes automatically.

    :(:(:(:(

    With your Microsoft Office Suite you should have a tool included called Microsoft Office Diagnostics (or something along those lines). Try starting that up and let it check for any errors. Hope this helps.

    Hi thanks for the info but the only problem is that you need to access diagnostics for outlook while in Outlook, my outlook keeps automatically shutting down about 2 seconds after i open it :confused:

    No luck unfortunately. No problems were detected. Any other ideas because I am clueless on this one.
