Outlook 2003 Cannot Close Archives

By fadbel ·
You receive the "The operation failed. An object could not be found" error message when you attempt to CLOSE ARCHIVES that are open. This is similar to the same message received on clicking "Send/Receive" which requires building a new Outlook Profile.
I've tried that and it gets rid of the Archive folders also wipes out ALL OF MY CUSTOMIZATION...RULES...ADDRESS BOOK...FORMAT OF FOLDERS, etc.
This is unacceptable! I've spent too much time getting this stuff set the way I want it.
Yes, I know I can IMPORT the address book and the rules but, it's the Folder Format and the Shortcuts to the folders plus some other niceties that I lose.
Can someone tell me what to look for in the "Object not found"? All I want to do is close Archive Folders.
I did an Archive consisting of almost 700 MB, yes, that's right, 700 MB of files and IT ATTACHED ITSELF RIGHT BACK TO OUTLOOK!
What good is archiving to reduce application size when you can't get rid of the archive from the app???
