outlook connector error

  wildrover 09:17 18 May 2009

Hello. For the past month I have been having outlook synch problems - regularly getting an outlook connector error message: "We were unable to sign into your account. Outlook Connector has encountered an error. Please restart Outlook. If the issue continues, open the Control Panel, click Add/Remove Programs, and repair Outlook Connector." The problem is solved by repairing Outlook Connector (restarting Outlook has no effect) but I then get the error message a couple of days later. This has been going on for about a month and seems to be happening more regularly.

Outlook 2007, Windows Vista

Run both of these free tools, and if no infection is reported, then post back.

Try removing the connector in add or remove programs and download a new one and install it

many thanks to both of you.

crosstrainer: Have run both tools and removed lots of adware.

mfletch: If I get the error message again I will do that.

Hi. I've tried both the suggestions but am still getting the error. It did appear to improve after removing the adware, and also after re-installing the connector. I also thought a bacup programme (i-sure) might be interfering with it so uninstalled that. I then didn't have the problem for a few days but it is now back with a vengance and I get the error message almost every time I start outlook.
