Microsoft Office Outlook often fails to open. I


Make sure you have all of the critical and important patches for both your operating system and MS Office/Outlook. If you continue having these problems after being fully patched, go to the Add/Remove Programs (XP and earlier) or Programs and Features (Vista) applet. Select MS Office (if you have the full Office installation) or MS Outlook (if you have the standalone Outlook installation). In Vista, select Change otherwise select Uninstall (which should open a dialog offering to Repair or Uninstall the application(s)). Select Repair and click Next to let it do its thing. A reboot may be required when it has completed its work. You also may need to reapply service packs and patches so make sure you visit Windows Update, Microsoft Update, and/or the Office Update websites as soon as possible.

Are you using Outlook?
open Outlook, then click on help, then on drop down menu, cick on "detect and repair"

If that does not work:
Go to :
Start
Control Panel
Add/Remove programs
when the windows opens up , scroll down to MS Office, then click on change.
A window will open and the second choice should be "repair" You may need to have your MS Office handy.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
