Outlook.exe has caused errors and will

or Outlook.exe has caused
an error and will be closed by Windows...
Here's what was happening and
how I fixed it. You open Outlook (98, 2000 or 2002) and it opens
just fine. After a few minutes it dumps and presents you with

Oh, you say you ran the ScanPST

the corruption. Just my 2 cents...
You must make a NEW PST file

||Make sure Outlook
a search for the Outlook.PST file. It's not real easy to find.
