Cannot start Microsoft Outlook (New Info)

Posted: 10-01-2008, 07:30 PM
There's info about the problem on the internet, saying basically that
there's a conflict with Office. The solution suggested was to click on the
Mail icon in the control panel. When I do so, I get the message "You need
more memory or systems resources. Close some windows and try again." But
hardly any resources are being used.

I think the problem may have been caused by installing Office 97. I did it
by accident. I'm having problems uninstalling it. There's a side bar which
is still there even after uninstallation. If I try to unclick the only
option chosen in the list, it says a toolbar must be there.

And even after this partial uninstall, I'm still getting the insufficient
memory message.

What can I do?

After the last message, I repeated the uninstall, this time successfully. (I
retained the shared componets.) I now see that Office 97 had the Outlook
stuff on it. After rebooting, the Microsoft Outlook icon had gone. (And I
still get the insufficient memory message.)

Even worse news. When the machine was automatically installing Vista, I
didn't get a Create a Vista CD option (I don't think). So I don't have a
back up of the OS I bought this morning.

Help!

If you have the original Vista disks you bought you don't need any other CD.

The OS was pre-installed. The salesguy said I could make program disks
myself. Where is this option hidden?

You would need to refer to the paperwork supplied or visit the manufacturers
site for how to create the recovery disks, if you purchased from PC World go
back there.
PS You cannot install from cd by accident, it requires user input
Only Office/Outlook 2003 or 2007 is fully compatible with Vista

It seems to be the case that Home Premium doesn't actually HAVE this option.
To back up the system, I've now got to spend another 107 quid to buy
Ultimate.

Can it possibly be right that there's no way to get back to zero after a
crash?

One cannot install from cd by accident? It's very easy. You pick the wrong
CD and, while you're busy multitasking, you click on all the Yes options
facilely.

Did I _really_ need to point that out?

Consult the User manual that came with the machine. The Vendor HAS to
provide you with a way to restore the machine to factory gate state.
