After update Office, every time you open Outlook, you receive an error message:
Something is wrong with one of your data files and Outlook needs to close. Outlook might be able to fix your file. Click OK to run the Inbox Repair Tool.
The Inbox Repair Tool (ScanPST) opens, appears to complete the file repair and yet, the error message won't go away.
If you see this message once, it's likely the data file needs repaired. If it comes up multiple times in a row, it may be a bug in Office Version 2005 Build 12827.20268 or higher.
