Approximately a month ago I started having a problem opening Outlook. I found that if I restarted my computer, I could then open Outlook for ~ 2-4 times 99 (it varies) before I had to restart the computer agaion. I've tried uninstalling Office 2007 and reinstaalling but nothing so far seems to work. Any ideas would be appreciated

Does this happen even if you start Outlook in Safe Mode? (hold down CTRL while you click the icon) See if this helps:http://www.officeforlawyers.com/outlook/tsol.htm#safe

If you close Outlook then look at the Task Manager (CTRL+ESCAPE) Process list do you see Outlook still running...even long afrer you've closed it?

When it won't start do you get an error message?

What is the size of the PST file? If the pst file crosses the size limit of 2GB there might be some issues.

Check the size, if it has crossed then, run scanpst for the pst file.

Also check the article below to manage PST file.
