My outlook keeps freezing after i open the program. No matter what i do (click on an e-mail, send/receive, open an new e-mail, etc.) it freezes. Can someone help me with this problem?
Hi 'dswabes' ,
Sorry to see you are still having issues with your system. I note you have posted your HJT log in late November and Mr Charlie helped you to a successful conclusion.
Suggest you do the following and see how you go.
To be on the safe side I strongly recommend that before doing anything at all you check that your back up/archive/copy of all your important data, drivers, files, settings, work, etc is 100% up to date accurate and reproducible, (even if your back up is even only a day or so out of date, it's worth updating it now.)
Also don't forget to check that you have all your application Installation CD's to hand together with the product keys (including those for Windows itself)
Windows Protected System File Checker SFC
sfc /scannow (note the space)
Have your Win XP installation disc handy as if damaged files are found they will need to be copied across from your disc, if SFC can't find correct copies elsewhere.
Windows XP Installation disc not available or wrong Service Pack ie SP1 when SP2 is needed
There are work- arounds to this problem but the easiest, by far is to borrow one and use that. It is perfectly OK to do this, for the purposes of running SFC,and if you ask around all your friends, you are likely to find someone who will be able to help you out.
SFC no disc, no friends able to help.
Well you will need to do it the harder way and as a registry edit will be required it is essential that you back up your registry before you do anything else. Then in the event of trouble it will be easier to repair your registry. Download ERUNT from here: (http://www.snapfiles.../get/erunt.html) and take a moment to familiarise yourself with the programme and how to repair your registry with it if it should become necessary. At the same time it would be wise to create a System Restore point, post back here if you need instructions on how to do this.

I truncated my outlook.pst file, then repaired it. I tried to do an Archive to shrink the current size of my pst file but got the following error message:
Error while archiving folder "Inbox" in store "Personal Folders". Some items could not be copied. They were either moved or deleted, or access was denied.
Error while archiving folder "Sent Items" in store "Personal Folders". Some items could not be copied. They were either moved or deleted, or access was denied.
Can you help with this?
