A quick history - just purchased a new Dell laptop running Windows 7 (64-bit). Installed Office Home & Student 2010. Have hosted Exchange service through GoDaddy; attempting to download and install Outlook to set up email account. (No known issues with the Exchange service as email is running fine on my old laptop.) Had multiple issues installing Outlook 2010 which I believe were caused by anti-virus software which has since been uninstalled. Help desk at GoDaddy initially suggested using Outlook 2007, which I tried, but I was never able to get past the 'You have a previous version of the Microsoft Exchange Messaging Service" error message.
Current status is that all copies of Outlook 2007 have been uninstalled (to the best of my knowledge) along with the anti-virus software. I have successfully downloaded and installed Outlook 2010, and it appears to be working. However, when I attempt to set up my user profile through the 'mail' utility from Control Panel, I am having no luck. No profile named 'Outlook' appears (as it typically did in the past), and adding a new user profile brings up the message 'There was an error accessing your system registry.'
Any input / suggestions to solve this issue would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks very much!!
