    Hi there:

    This morning I attempted to open Outlook 2000 as per normal - all that happens is that although the Outlook 2000 icon appears momentarily in the task bar at bottom of screen (just like it noramlly does when it is anout to open), it then disppears and the application does not start.

    All other office programs work.

    Please be aware if you can offer any advice I am complete novice at this kind of thing!

    Thanks In Advance
    DJM

    Have you tried repairing your Office installation? If I remember correctly, there should be a repair option via the Add/Remove Programs (where you normally go when you want to uninstall something).

    You may want your installation discs on hand, as the repair process may need them ;)

    also, just to be, I removed .pst files to another folder and created a new .pst log - this does not resolve. Trying to run Oulook via the Start menu does only throws up an error message (and does not start)
