MS Office Outlook cannot open, Errors detected in the file

Asked By 40 points N/A Posted on -


After the system upgrade and scan, I ended up with an error message when I try to open the Microsoft Office Outlook. To my knowledge, I did not change anything with Outlook. For the past two days, I am not able to check the mailbox. Whenever I try, I get this error message. I tried to restart the system but nothing helps. Please help. Thanks.
