    In the last few days Outlook 2k has stopped working for no apparent reason. Nothing happens I click on the shortcut or the .exe file except sometimes for a little harddrive activity the first time I click it, but usually nothing at all on subsequent times.
    I run a 2 PC network using internet sharing and store my .PST file on the other PC which I then link to. I have tried the MS repair, re-installing and even uninstalling and installing Outlook 97 into a different location but with the same result.
    I have recently run several windows updates which seems coincidental.
    I have also tried the windows restore feature but this will NOT allow me to restore to any earlier date!

    Don't really want to do a clean install of XP but will if I have to.

    Completely stuck now.
