From the Guide...
This is what is happening...sorry, it took a minute to dawn on me just what was going on. I'm so used to this procedure working that I forgot that a serious corruption will force a fresh install.
However, this can also be a software or hardware issue...let's try a Selective Startup and see if we can get into Normal Mode.
Cancel out of the repair, remove the cd, and boot into Safe Mode. Click Start, then Run, type msconfig, and click "Ok". Under the "General" tab, tick the box next to "Selective Startup", and untick the box next to "Load startup items". Click "Apply" and "Ok"...reboot.
Does it boot to Normal Mode?

Use msconfig again. Under the "General" tab, put the check back in "Normal Startup". Then click on the "Startup" tab. Start at the bottom of the list and deselect the last 5 checkboxes. Apply the change and reboot...does it go into Normal Mode?

Lots faster than uninstalling and reinstalling, isn't it?

thank you very much for your exceptional help. I am currently running the office 12 beta and having trouble with my outlook it always wants to start in safe mode. should I just uninstall it and reinstall office 2003, and if I still have a problem with outlook. May I contact you for your outstanding help.

Go back to the 2003 and if reinstalling it doesn't fix the Outlook problem...I will be very surprised.
As a side note, there is a better e-mail client available. I've used it exclusively in place of Outlook for a long time without any issues at all. Thunderbird.
Please do come back if you have problems...we do this because we love it!
