Yes I have the latest connector from the the Microsoft site. I even tried an older version that I know was OK a year ago - but outlook updated it. I have removed the connector and outlook 4 times, still no luck, every time I sign on I get a new email in my sync folder. Although I have win 7 64 bit the office 2007 is 32 bit, so I have to use the 32 bit connector.
Great minds think alike - yes I did that; as well as running ccleaner I ran advance system care; I deleted all entries in the registry to the connector and outlook 2007 but still no go. No error messages on F9 but in the sync folder I get a sync error message. Outlook works fine it is just that at the end of the day I have loads of emails in my sync folder - until I discovered how to show the sync fold (control 6) I did not know there was anything wrong. I got a shock there were over 650 sync error emails!! Interestingly I downloaded a free trial of Office 2010 that works OK no problems syncing but it does not work well with google chrome.
