    Alright so I use Outlook as my mail client for my adelphia connection and I think that my mom (very technologically impaired person) accidentally deleted something because Outlook will open and after it starts up all the way it will automatically close. Anyone have any ideas how to fix this? I tried putting in the office 2003 cd and using the repair option but that didn't work. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

    Here are some suggestions I came across from doing a goggle search on your problem. Try the first one and see if the problem is fixed, if not go to the next one and so forth.

    1.. Try running scanpst.exe on your Personal Folder. By default
    scanpst.exe can be found here;
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MSMAPI\<locale ID>

    2.. Try renaming outcmd.dat to .old and restart Outlook. All the Toolbars
    will reset then. This is quite a common problem with Outlook . The default
    location for this file is:
    C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

    3.. Try recreating the profile in Control Panel-> Mail-> button Show
    Profiles...

    4.. Try running Outlook with the /safe switch from your Start-> Run
    window. The command line should look like this (check your path to
    Outlook.exe);
    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office11\Outlook.exe" /safe
    When this works run Help-> Detect and Repair

    5.. Start in safe mode again and disable individual add-ons in Tools->
    Options-> tab Other-> button Advanced E-mail Options...-> button Add-In
    Manager.../COM Add-ins...

    Make sure Outlook isn't minimizing itself into the System Tray next to the clock.
