Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook Error detected

Asked By 40 points N/A Posted on -

Though this might marvel you but the PST file of my Outlook has reach up to 4GB. I have trashed quite huge mess; even I’ve emptied from recycle, and set its mood to compact. I tried every possible technique, but it results in disappointment to me and size did not get smaller, rather it increases with time.

As per my knowledge, it should hardly be nearly 1GB.

Did any of you know how I can rebuild the PST file merely for emails, contacts and selected folders I wish to keep? I need it to works smoothly, and yet it grasps proper size.

Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook Error detected


Hi Heather,
You receive error because the file the Outlook profile name is profilename.xml that maintains the Navigation Pane settings becomes corrupted.

For Windows XP: C:Documents and SettingsusernameApplication DataMicrosoftOutlook

For Windows Vista, Windows 7: C:UsersusernameAppDataRoamingMicrosoftOutlook

When the file is corrupted the good indication is the file size turn to 0 KB. And to solve this problem, go to “Fix it for me” and if you can solve this problem on your own, go to “Let me fix it myself”.

For fix it for me, go to the Fix this problem link. When the dialog box appears click Run and follow the steps which is English language only.

For Let me fix it myself, Click Run from the Start. Type this: Outlook.exe /resetnavpane in the Run dialog box. Click OK.

That's it. Hope it will help you.
