I am running windows XP with all updates and Outlook 2007. Outlook worked fine 2 days ago but then I the power went off for a couples of minutes and when I restarted my computer, received the following error message when starting outlook, "

Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened. Errors have been detected in the file: c:\Documents and Settings\Art Smith\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook.pst. Quit Outlook and all mail-enabled applications and then use the Inbox repair tool (SCANPST.exe) to diagnose and repair errors in the file. For more information about the inbox repair tool, see help.

I tried to use the scanpst.exe to scan the file they named, but get an error message that says the file doesn't exist. I used explore to try and find the file mentioned but could not find it. Downloaded Outlook tools and tried to use it, but could not find a file to scan that existed (received either an error message that I was trying to scan a folder or that the file did not exist). Used Office 2007 and the repair feature to fix the problem but that did not work. I also tried the reset navpane and received the same error message above.

Do not know what to do from here. Can anyone help?

Thanks
