View Full Version : Big problem with running Outlook 2000



17-03-2002, 11:27 PM
I have been using Outlook 2000 to manage my email, contacts and the like for the past year or so. Today, I was installing Aimster (a file sharing program) on my computer. I have used it before with no problems. However, as I was installing the computer crashed, and ever since I've been totally unable to open Outlook. (I have reinstalled Aimster, and that works fine).

When I try to open Outlook, the little window that says 'Outlook 2000' with the registration details and all that appears, but then the program just freezes. I've reinstalled Office 2000 twice, but the problem is still there. Does anyone have any ideas? Please!

Hi, how were you storing your e-mail? If it was in a PST that PST file may have become corrupted. You can use the inbox repair tool which is hidden somewhere on the office 97 CD to fix it. If it was in 'Internet email only' mode then I'm not sure this will help. Back up a copy of the PST before running it through the repair tool though.
