Re: Microsoft Outlook

When your in an office application preferably Microsoft Word, when the assistant pops up right-click on it then click on "Choose Assistant" then if you choose an assistant from that options it should stick with that assistant through out your time using office.

If the Office Assistant doesn't come up at any time all you need to to do is click on "Help" on the top tool bar then click on "Show The Office Assistant"

There are many assistants to choose from, enjoy.

Re: Microsoft Outlook

This is most likely occuring because you are using Outlook 2003 with Office XP. If you have upgraded Outlook without upgrading the rest of the Office components, you can solve this by upgrading Office or downgrading Outlook.

This issue may occur if you deploy Outlook 2003 with the Microsoft Office 2003 Custom Installation Wizard and specify a personal folder (.pst) file in the Windows Installer transform (MST file) by using the Default location for PST files path option. The problem occurs because you specify a file name instead of a folder path.

To resolve this issue for future installations of Office, use the Custom Installation Wizard to edit the MST file. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. On the Change Office User Settings page (page 10 of 24), expand Microsoft Outlook 2003, expand Miscellaneous, and then click PST Settings.
  2. In the right pane, double-click Default location for PST files, and then type the path that you want in the Default location for PST files box. For example, type %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\.
  3. Click OK, and then follow the steps to complete the wizard. When you have corrected the MST file, deploy Office by using the correct MST file.
To resolve this issue for an existing installation of Outlook that is experiencing this problem, specify the .pst file by using the Mail icon in Control Panel.

Or If you are receiving and Err like
Error message when you start Outlook: "Unable to open the Outlook window," "No profile has been created," or "The list of Profiles cannot be loaded"Follow the step's below:This issue may occur on a computer that is running Windows XP if the Outlook.exe file was configured to open with the Windows program compatibility mode setting. When you set compatibility for Outlook to Windows 95 or to Windows 98/Windows Millennium Edition, Outlook displays this error message. This is because the location of the Outlook Profile information in the registry differs on a Windows XP-based computer.

To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
  1. Locate Outlook.exe.

    Outlook.exe is typically located in one of the following folders, depending on the version of Outlook that you are running:
    • Microsoft Office Outlook 2010 C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14
    • Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12
    • Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office 11
    • Microsoft Outlook 2002 C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office 10
    • Microsoft Outlook 2000 C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office 9
  2. Right-click Outlook.exe, and then click Properties.
  3. On the Compatibility tab, click to clear the Run this program in compatibility mode for check box.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Try to start Outlook. If you receive error message again, use Method 2.

Outlook 2007 not starting. Error message says corrupted file. Run Scnpst.exe.

As an old Outlook user (for over a decade). I ever met similar error with my Outlook PST files before and got it solved with this Outlook PST repair software, the software extracts & restores those inaccessible Outlook items in a new .pst file and enables complete Outlook data recovery. If you want to take the most effective way, then try that program. Hope it helps too with your case.

Cat search companion no longer availabel

Hi, this is only possible if you have the disk.
What you need to do is to uninstall office 2007 and reinstall office 2003. I am assuming that you were using 03, if not reinstall the the one you had before. But only do this if you still have the disk.

Please reply with the Operating system you are using and I will be able to be more detail as how to uninstall office 2007.

But basically it is going to control panel and add remove programs or programs and features and look for office 2007 and click uninstall at the top.

To reinstall the previous version insert the disk and hit install. Follow all instructions after that.
