Windows 7: MS Outlook won't install on one account only

MS Outlook won't install on one account only

Hi

I have MS Office 2000 installed on my Win7 desktop and all the programs work fine except for outlook. Outlook on my wife's user account is ok and no problems but on my (administrator) account, every time I try to open the program I get the pop up message "Do you want the following programme from an unspecified publisher to make changes to this computer" - almost as if it is trying to run the progrram from new instead of from an installed version??. When I click yes it tells me it can't find the pst file and do I want to create a new one, when I try to do that it says that the messaging interface has encountered an unknown error and I should restart outlook (and exactly the same thing happens). I have tried repairing the installation with the original CD but this doesn't change this issue

anyone with any ideas?

Thanks
