Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window.

I cannot open the default profile in outlook 2007 since service pack 2 was installed on my vista ultimate 64-bit edition machine by windows update.  I receive the error "Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook.  Cannot open the Outlook window."  I have created a new profile and it works ok, but would really like to get the settings from the other profile.  Is there anyway to recover this apparently "broken" profile?

Hi All - I tried it and every other thing MS recommended.  Still cannot open outlook.
