Second post - Outlook won't open - please help!

This is my second post - could really use help with this!

Everytime I open Outlook, I get the following message

OUTLOOK.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. You will 
need to restart the program. An error log is being created.

I have tried everything, including rebooting my computer, using the repair 
function for Add Programs and reinstalling all of Office. Nothing is fixing 
it. Is it a virus, and if so, how can I fix it?

I have Outlook 2000 on my PC, although all files reside on our server and we 
use MS SBS 2000. Everything else (Word, Excel) is working fine. 

Any suggestions will be much appreciated!

That works! 

Is there a reason why uninstalling/reinstalling didn't work? I'm not that 
knowledgeable and am a little hesitant to rename the files as the 
instructions recommend on the link you provided.

Thanks so much for your help!

Posting Journals causing locks (?)
It appears that posting journals to the GL in Great Plains v7.5 is putting table or record locks on SQL Server that subsequently block other users. It seems to be an intermttent problem, but we've seen the spid listed in Enterprise Manager as blocking 4 or more users. The system grinds to a halt when this occurs. Also, posting even a simple journal with 2 entries takes an inordinately long time - 5 min or more. We think perhaps that's the problem, where a normally brief lock is being held too long. Posting is slow even if there are no other users on the system. So I have 2 ...
