I've got a friend whose Outlook crashes immediately after opening it. No error message or anything. Had her reboot but that didn't do the trick. There's a repair function on the CD, right? Other than that, I'm thinking about having her try a system restore -- any better ideas?

I would suspect they may have an addin that is breaking Outlook.

You may first want to try and open Outlook in Safe Mode. Start, Run "Outlook /safe" (no quotes)

You can disable addins manually I believe, but can't recall off the top of my head where it is. A sample would be disabling PDF (if they have the writer obviously), which can be done like this -

Thanks, Derek -- I'll give that a shot tomorrow.

Rushy, I assume I'd need to be able to get into Outlook to change those settings. I suppose I could if I were to get it into Safe Mode, though.

Ryan, anything in the Event Viewer? I've had to deal with issues with Outlook crashing because of ntdll.dll. Let me know.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
