I think you should try to remove it using the mail applet, by going in to your control panel or can even simply delete and try to recreate your Outlook profile on your system. Then you need to reboot your pc after deleting your profile, before you create a new one on your pc.

If you want you can try out Outlook recovery tool which is also known as Advanced Outlook Repair in order to repair your PST file. It is a powerful tool to recover messages, folders and other objects which may have corrupted or damaged Microsoft Outlook PST files on your system.

Hey Hodge,
It is very easy ans simple your Scanpst.exe is corrupted. I don't know how but it did. There can be various reasons for this like virus attacks, OS corruption, abnormal termination of system and many more.

As you must be knowing that scanpst.exe is a free utility provided by Microsoft to repair corrupt Outlook PST file. But because of faulty Outlook installation, sometimes it does not function properly or in all situations of errors. It seems that the PST file has got corrupt because of oversize, sudden system shutdown or virus attack.In such circumstances you should use a third party tool to fix the error.
