Windows 7: outlook could not create the work file. Check the temp environment var

outlook could not create the work file. Check the temp environment var

I can't find any information with Windows 7 Ultimate and Outlook 7 on this error other than trying to delete temp file.

My issue started when an installation of AVG failed and corrupted just about everything. I am in PC Hell right now - with error messages all over the place.

At first Outlook wouldn't even open. I was getting error about the extend.dat file and profile message that Outlook couldn't open. Got that resolved but now am getting this error message when it does open
