Can't connect with MS Outlook

This is not a matter of life & death, but I keep getting a message pop up in the middle of my screen saying "Could not connect to Microsoft Outlook - Error 2147221164". I am assuming that this might be something to do with Google Calendar and as such the message is not too surprising as I don't have Outlook installed, I use Windows Live Mail. I'm running Windows 7 Professional. Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can stop this pesky message appearing?

Do you use hotmail?

No to Hotmail

Do you have an e-mail client? It is a Google Calendar Sync problem and seems to be fairly widespread without a definitive solution.

Do you have Office starter pack? Might be worth running Ccleaner.
