Causes of error messages
Microsoft Outlook 2007 is the default email client for all computers with the Microsoft Windows operating systems. If you have recently upgraded your operating system to Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition or Professional Edition, you might get a problem where Outlook Express closes every time when you try to open it and this will show an error message ‘cannot open the outlook window’. This error message is an indication that your Outlook Express profile has become corrupted and needs to be recreated.
Due to the corruption in Microsoft Outlook Express, you will get some error messages frequently and will not be able to open the Microsoft Outlook Express window. While opening an XML attachment, Internet explorer will try to open the attachment from the temporary Internet files folder. However the browser may fail to open .xml attachments from that folder due to the corrupt data in Microsoft Outlook, so when you try to open any document an error message will appear.
In order to solve the problem, open the start menu and click on the run icon. Enter "regedit" into the text box and press the "OK" button to execute the command. The command will open the registry editor window on your computer desktop. Go to the identities directory, within this directory you will see a separate folder for each of the Microsoft Outlook Express identities. Click the save button to back up a copy of your Microsoft Outlook profile data and delete the primary identity from the registry. Then open the Microsoft Outlook Express and follow the instructions to recreate your identity.
