For the last 7days or so, every time I open Outlook 2003, I get a message, "The data file "Personal Folder" was not closed properly. This file is being checked for problems." I have looked every where I know and have seen others with this same problem and it seems no one is having any luck finding a fix or work around. Mcrosoft Support has been no help... I have tried using the scanpst.exe uility, tried safe mode with no sucess. When the file check is finished I still can not access Outlook, it freezes. Glad I can go through Charter to get my email. Any ideas or help will be greatly appreciated!!

Open Word then press help then detect and repair, make sure there is a tick in restore my shortcuts, you may need the Office CD's, this will repair all Office apps
