User Profile Issue?

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.newusers (More info?)

I think the problem I have is a corrupt profile but I'm not sure. Can
anyone confirm this and suggest remedy please?

I have an XP user on a Win2003 served network - roaming profiles enabled.
Currently there are three users of a PC - generally just for email access
via exchange server.
Two users can logon to the machine and launch Outlook.
One user can logon (his menus are a bit disorganised) but when he tries to
start Outlook he gets a "Cannot Start Microsoft Outlook" error box.
I have tried making the user an administrator of the local machine but no
good.
Is this likely a profile issue?
If so how do I do a clean removal of the user, then let him log on again for
his profile to come down off the server?

TIA

Phil

    Hi,

    If he can logon, then it's probably not a corrupt profile. More likely a
    corrupted .pst file or other factor is preventing Outlook from opening.
