Outlook XP won't start

by hawkeye_74 / August 8, 2005 4:08 AM PDT

Running Office SB XP on Win 2k and came in this morning and it won't start for 1 user on the machine. I ran Adaware, Spybot and Antivirus. None of these helped. I uninstalled/reinstalled Office and it still won't start.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

OUTLOOK /SAFE and be sure to check the Task Manager to see if Outlook is running but invisible.

I finally (and just) got it with the 5th spybot scan and 3 adaware scan.

It was a data mining program stuck in the registry.

Thanks for your help Bob.
