Microsoft Outlook 2000 Will Not Open

Microsoft Outlook® 2000 full product cd...

Specs: Windows XP
I am having difficulty with opening MS Outlook 2000. It keeps giving me an error message that it has encountered a problem and needs to shut down. I have tried doing a System Restore and that will work if I go back far enough. But once I do a Windows Update, the same thing happens again.

I only use Outlook 2000 for my calendar and address book needs. I use Outlook Express as my email program.

I am using Windows XP Professional SP3, if you require any further information, please let me know and I will try to retrieve it.

Can someone please help me fix this?

What happens, if you reinstall Outlook 2000 over the existing one, after you're done all the updates?

Paul, I did not know I was able to do so. Do I need to uninstall Outlook first and then reinstall it? Or do I just install it over the old one?

Jennifer, this is my first post/question. I just signed up last night. I was not sure if I had posted the comment in the correct forum, so I decided to repost it in this one. I apologize.

I do not know how to create a new profile. I can try reinstalling Outlook first, and then if it does not work, I will report back here and maybe you can give me instructions on how to create another profile.

I really hate bothering people. I try to find the answers out myself, but I have spent the last three days googling various computer forums and nothing works that has been suggested.

I will keep you both posted. Thank you so much for replying!

I would simply install it over the existing version and give it a try.

If this doesn't work for you, you can try to uninstall and reinstall it and give that a try.

Paul, I am trying to locate Disk One of my Office 2000. I have the CD cover here, but only with Disk Two. How wonderful.

But I found this thread that was posted awhile ago. Jennifer, since you had tried to help this gentleman, can you please explain what he means by:

"It appears that a Windows update had changed the permissions of the pst file (again)."

I have not been able to get into Outlook since I did my Microsoft update (which I do weekly). I tried to google how to change the permission on this, but whatever I try does not work.

What does it mean that Windows update changed the permission? And how do I fix this?

In the meantime, I am still trying to locate Disk One. What a dummy I am.
