    Operating system: Vists 64
    Application Office 2010 Outlook

    Outlook has apparently been corrupted. When I try to open it I get a message "Cannot start Microsoft Outlook". I have tried suggested methods for repairing corrupted messages with no success. I also uninstalled and reinstalled Office (2010) with no success.

    I was able to open Outlook on the same machine under another user name however I cannot open past emails or contacts.

    I renamed the pst data file on the chance it might be the problem. This did not help.

    On possible part of the problem may be that the messages may not have beeg archived and the data file is too large.

    If possible I would like to know how to open the data file. When I ran the file repair on the data file is daid there were errors and they were corrected. If I cannot get the Outlook file to open is it possible to open the data file in the other user Outlook? If so is it safe to do so?

    Any suggestions for a) Getting the Outlook file to open, or;
    b) opening the data file so I can get the address book and messages back, would be greatly appreciated.

    I would recommend to uninstall it using Revo uninstaller free to completely uninstall it and re-install
