Can you get more details about the error so we can try to help diagnose it?
Also, which version of Outlook are you using?

Sorry - having just reread my message, it wasn't very helpful, was it?

I'm using Outlook 2003 and the the problem occurs when I close Outlook - in
that it doesn't completely close, the icon is still in the systray and
Outlok is shown as running in Taask Manager. When I try and start Outlook,
it takes a while to respond and then the error pops up, asking me if I want
to restart Outlook and send a report to Microsoft.

Funny, but I can't replicate it at the moment - it's working OK, so I'll
shut down my PC and see if it happens again.

Some common reasons why Outlook will not shut down completely when you click
either the X or Exit:

1. PDA synchronization software with your PDA in the cradle.
2. WinFax Pro (especially 10.02 in Outlook 2003) - contact their support
for an alleged fix.
3. Franklin-Cover Plan Plus!
4. COM Add-ins.
5. Mail reminder add-ins that keep a stub of Outlook open in the background
to check for new mail and fire reminders.
6. Anti-virus/firewall programs that are set to scan incoming and outgoing
mail.

Hi Milly,

Could be 1 or 6, so I'll investigate further and see how I get on.

Thanks,
