Microsoft Outlook 2010 Will Not Open. Errors have been detected in the file

Original title: Microsoft Outlook 2010 Will Not Open

When I went to open Microsoft Outlook 2010 Friday night it showed the start screen, the load profile screen and then gave me this message in a box with a red circle with an x in it beside it...

Cannot start Microsoft Outlook.  Cannot open the Outlook window.  The set of folders cannot be opened.  Errors have been detected in the file C:/Users/---/Documents/Outlook Files/ (the dashes represent my name and e-mail address)

I created an archive folder for the first time on Tuesday, 07-08-14, prior to receiving this error message on Friday, 07-11-14.  I did a restore point to the Monday, 07-06-14, prior and that did not correct the problem.  It still will not open.  

How can I correct this issue?  Would turning off the archive feature correct the issue?  If so, is it possible to turn the archive feature off if I can't even open Outlook?

Thank you.

Which version of Office suite installed on your computer? Is it 32 bit or 64 bit?

Let's go to the following location and check if you're able to find Scanpst.exe file.
