This is the error message that keeps poppung up:
Microsoft Office Outlook
Outlook failed to start correctly last time. Starting Outlook in safe mode will help you correct or isolate a startup problem in order to successfully start the program. Some functionality may be disabled in this mode.
Do you want to start Outlook in safe mode?
When I say "No", Outlook just crashes again, asking if it should send an error report to Microsoft and offers me the option to restart outlook again, which results in the Q asking if I want to start in safe mode again...
Anyway, I've send a few dozens of error reports to MS, hoping it annoys them as much as it annoys me. It does make me feel a little better but doesn't solve the problem.
So, how to solve this problem without re-installing Outlook?
What happened before? The computer I use is at work. On friday, I worked at home and used a remote desktop connection to access the system. Not being able to turn it off and also wanting to work a little in the weekend, the computer was on during the whole weekend. (I was logged off, though.) On Monday-morning, the administrators fixed a problem in the network (don't know what they fixed) which resulted in a very slow start-up and a hung system after 10 minutes. A cold reboot was done, without network cable since the network was down and I started everything again. (The reset button didn't work either.) All just works fine again, except for Outlook. So it seems it got corrupt because of the cold reboot.
We use Exchange for the mailboxes so those are stored online. I have a .PST file as archive on my local system.
