Can only start Outlook 2010 beta in safe mode?

Oulook had been working good until I did a repair.  Now when I try to open Office I get "preparing to install - wait Windows configures Microsoft Office single image 2010 beta.  Dialog box opens that states to reboot system.  On reboot I get the same results when tryini to open Outlook.  I changed profiles, removed prefirst in registry, did scanpst exe. but still no start.  Open in safe mode and looked in the add ins and some are selected and some are not.  Not sure which items should be selected.  Numerouse reboots but still Outlook will not start in normal mode.  Even tried to open program in run: C;\program files\Microsoft Office\office 14\outlook.exe.  I am out of ideas.  Can you help?

2) Disable com add-ins or items in the add-in manager.

3) Backup the registry then remove Outlook add-in SUB keys which are at the following locations:

4) Try ‘outlook
/no preview’. If this works, then there may be a corrupted message in the inbox.

5) Disable Word as the email editor

6) Check task manager to see if any processes are loading with Outlook if so remove related software.
