Outlook 2003 Crashing

By jkblight ·
I connected my laptop to an exchange server today and everything appeared to be going well. When I tried to set a signature and clicked the drop down menu to select the created signature Outlook froze, an error message appeared indicating that Outlook had to close and I got an option to send an error report. I found that it errors when ANY drop down menu is accessed. I have run detect and repair twice without success and have uninstalle and reinstalled the Office 2003 Suite without success. It crashes with and without SP3 installed.

Any suggestions or ideas?

Solved - I had the same problem.

I joined TechRepublic just to answer your questions because I had the same problem and it drove me nuts.

I found the solution over at Experts Exchange. The hidden file WindowsShell.Manifest under C:\Windows was missing. I copied it from another workstations to the windows folder and it solved the problem instantly.
