    Hi ythak

    Are you using the Start menu shortcut to start Outlook 2003, or a Desktop shortcut?

    Close Outlook 2003 and attempt to open it this way:

    Start > Run
    Key in:
    outlook.exe
    Click: OK

    Outlook 2003 should start normally.


    Let us know what happens.

    Are you receiving any messages, about Safe mode, before Outlook starts?

    yes there is always a prompt message before may outlook start.
    it is allowed here in our forum to paste the screen shot so that you can see the prompt?

    Yes, screen shots are allowed and welcomed. :)
    The best format would be a .jpg, and you can upload it to the TSG server.

    Open Paint and paste the image in that program. Then do a File > Save As and save the image as a .jpg file.
    Pictures in Word documents are not a good vehicle for images.

    When the image is complete, click the Go Advanced button here for your reply.
    Scroll down to the Manage Attachments button, click that button and a new window will open where you can Browse the files on your computer.
    Select the image and click the Upload button to upload the file to the server.
    The image will then appear with your reply.

    Good job. That's an interesting way to take the screen shot. :)


    Open Outlook 2003 and see if there are any Add-Ins you can disable:
    Tools > Options > Other tab > Advanced Options button > Add-In Manager button
    Uncheck any Add-Ins you find.
    Click: OK

    Click the Com Add-Ins button and do the same there.
    OK, OK, OK to exit the Options window.

    Close Outlook 2003 and restart, does it still start in Safe Mode?

    Hi!
    I follow your instruction but all the Add-Ins is uncheck and also Com Add-Ins is empty.

    I restart the outlook and still it is in the safe mode.

    do you think user account or settings might affect why may outlook is in safemode?

    thanks thanks,

    Did you create a new profile for Outlook, following the steps at the link I posted?

    Are there other problems occurring on this particular computer, that are affecting Outlook?
