I can't open Outlook Express 2007. It starts to open, but then says -Cannot

start Microsoft Outlook. Cannot open the outlook widow.

I don't know how to fix this?

Microsoft Outlook 2007 or Outlook Express which is part of Internet

Explorer?

What type of mail account do you have? Did it ever work for you before? Does

it work if you open Outlook in safe mode?

Is there an error message when you run that switch?

When did Outlook stop working?

Mine is doing the same thing. Only thing I did was shut down the computer

over night which I don't usually do.

Failed to get the Crawl Scope Manager with error=0x8007043c. I also get

this error in the event log.

It doesn't work in safe mode.

No. I created a new profile and imported my pst file and it works now. If

I use the Outlook profile it will not open. I am back in business. :)

Okay, I got help from an Information Specialist, this is what he had me do:

go to Start, Run, then type: outlook.exe/resetnavpane

That worked!

Your syntax is incorrect. There is a space between outlook.exe and

/resetnavpane.

The Butler From Tennessee

Hey guys, thanks a million for this solution. Today is December 10, 2009,

and for reasons unknown to me, my Outlook did exactly what you've described

in terms of error message, etc. I found this discussion group in about ten

minutes and it saved me hours and hundreds of dollars (in MS tech time). The

resetnavpane worked like you said. I'd love to know why Outlook messed up,

but then I may never know the reason.

Thanks again for saving my holidays.

Your fix is good. My Outlook simply stopped letting me in and your fix sorted

it within 30 seconds. Great, thank you. Andy
