Another Microsoft Outlook Issue

In the Fall of 2009 I upgraded from Windows Vista 64 bit to Windows 7 Pro 64 bit and my laptop has been quite stable, that is until this morning. The first thing I do in the morning is run Outlook and to my horror it wouldn’t start, instead an ominous error dialog popped up:

Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook. Cannot open the outlook window.

No need to fear because Google is here. A quick search brought me to this forum with the answer to fix it.

I just needed to type this cryptic command from my Start and Run menu:

Outlook.exe /resetnavpane

It never ceases to amaze me at how really unstable the entire Microsoft empire of Operating System plus Applications really is. Because they have a virtual monopoly on the OS I have little choice but to use them in my daily routine.
