    Outlook 2003 always opens in safe mode

    I can't stop Outlook 2003 from opening in a safe mode. When it does you can delete Com-Add-Ins, but not those listed under Add-In Manager. I wen to the folder where Add-Ins are located and deleted them all.

    I've defrag the hard drive and run RegSoft to cleanup the registry. I've tried to reloaded MS Office 2003.

    The only next step I can think of is to unload MS Office 2003 and the reload it.

    Windows XP SP3

    What are your thoughts? John

    Hi johnpsm
    Are you opening this from the shortcut on start menu for Outlook 2003 or from the desktop shortcut? Anyway, you can try to open the outlook 2003 in this way

    Start > Run
    Key in:
    Click: OK

    Now it should start the outlook without any problem. So just try this and let us know that if it solves the issue for you.

    Re: Outlook 2003 always opens in safe mode

    I know that this is an old topic, but I have recently started getting this error. I'm using XP Pro SP3, with Outlook 2003. I have tried rebooting my PC, forced and soft, and it keeps on coming up wanting to boot in safe mode. I have tried the option of starting Outlook via the run option as discussed below. I have also tried cleaning my registry.
    Any ideas of where else to look / try?
