Today, I encountered this issue on my computer. I was just loading emails and composing emails when suddenly it hanged and suddenly closed. When I opened it again, I was greeted with this message. It doesn’t stop me from using Outlook but it is a nag screen that shows up every few minutes so I looked for a solution for it.

The first thing I did was to run scanpst on my outlook files thinking that perhaps it got corrupted. After waiting for around 3 hours for it to finish since I have a big PST file; I opened outlook again and I still see the same nag screen. Scanpst is not the correct solution!

So I searched online for a solution and read that all you need to do is to close any messenger / chat programs you have on your computer that’s communicating with outlook. Sample programs would be MS communicator, MS Lync, jabber… just close them all and restart outlook. The error message would not show up again.

Till next time,

Allen
