    Outlook crashes W2K

    Outlook crashed my new build of W2K (with SP4 and all patches to 7/23). I periodically rebuild my OS and attach my old working files. Outlook.pst was moved to the new structure and the machine re-booted itself when I was attempting to open it.

    I uninstalled Office 2003 and reinstalled it and now Outlook crashes the machine with any attempt to do anything after it is opened.

    Suggestions?

    More detailed information from the crash might help.

    Re: Outlook crashes W2K

    This is a wierd one. I went back and checked every installed program. Most ran, two were "shut down by Windows" before launching, and Office crashed the OS with both Outlook and Publisher (new with 2003?) although Excel, Word, and Access ran OK. I had slipstreamed SP4 into the original W2K install to make a new install disk and built the OS into a clean partition on a new drive.

    The easiest fix appears to be starting over so I wiped out that partition and am re-installing as I write this. I'll let you know.

    If this is Office 2003 you might want to consider SP-1 (just released 7/27).
