Ok, so i got an email that I couldnt open (day 1), then my junk mail wouldnt
open (day 2) now outlook wont open (day 3). Did two scans and no virsus was
found. Everything I found wants me to repair the pst file, but there is
none. (All files are unhidden) What do I do if there is no pst file to
fix???

What is your Outlook version?
What is your account type?
What do you see in Control Panel | Mail | Data Files?

Outlook version
Outlook 2016 32 bit
Email Account
Office 365 Exchange
What account type? Outlook connector (hotmail/msn) and classic exchange
server won't have pst files. IMAP will, but its probably better to delete
the pst file and let it sync again.

If it shows in the Data File Management dialogue, then it must be on your
disk. You must be mistaken that all files are unhidden. Open Windows
Explorer and enter into the Address field the exact path you see in Outlook's
Data Files Management dialogue (minus the PST itself, of course). Click Go.
I'd bet nearly anything that you'll see the PST.

There absolutely is a PST if you're using a POP account. Outlook will not
operate any other way.
