Windows 7: Can't launch Outlook 2007

Windows 7
Can't launch Outlook 2007

I posted this thread by accident somewhere else, so apologies for the redundancies if caught.

In any event, the weirdest thing. I was working on my Dell running Win7 and Office 2007, doing business as usual and I decided to reboot because I hadn't in a while. After doing so, I went to launch Outlook again to check my email and it wouldn't open. The Outlook window would begin to appear and then a message window would pop up (see pic below) and Outlook wouldn't open.

I tried rebooting again and using both the Quick Launch icon and the shortcut on my Desktop, but no luck.

Can anyone help? I would rather than not have to reinstall Windows.

Windows 7
Can't Open Outlook 2007

I'm having the very same problem. I have an HP Pavillion running Windows 7 and using Outlook 2007, and all was working fine. I was doing an export of my .pst file to my D:/ drive and Outlook said it couldn't copy some files and I said to skip and continue. Outlook closed and would not restart. I continue to get the following error message. (I have attached an image)

I have tried the Outlook.exe /resetnavpane and it still does not work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
