Windows 7: Outlook-Mail Profile Created Newer Version of Outlook..How to fix?

Outlook-Mail Profile Created Newer Version of Outlook..How to fix?

I had Office 2010 installed temporarily a WHILE ago. I have had 2007 installed for a while again..suddenly I started getting the error message that Outlook profile was created with a newer version of Outlook. I have tried everything to get this fixed..with no luck..

Here is what I have done:
1. Deleted mail folder. Made new mail profile in Windows and in Outlook. Didn't change anything despite losing messages. I created "new" mail profile for 2007, and it is still telling me profile was created in Newer Version
2. I totally deleted and reinstalled Office..still getting error message..

This is driving me crazy. It's not a big deal-Outlook still works. It is just bugging me..
Any assistance is appreciated. I thought I had tried everything.

You might want to go to control panel, programs and do a repair on office/outlook 2010, some of the microsoft office updates do strange things with outlook. I have had to repair my 2010 a few times.

I am not a supporter of registry dabbling - however, if you must, please take a backup for safety:
Registry - Backup and Restore

Once that is safely completed:
