    The exe is scanpst.exe

    I am getting signon screens with every timed download. The error says to
    use the scanpst utility. It is not available from my view.

    Absolutely WRONG. The pst files do NOT reside in the Program Files folder.
    They are in /User/{account name}/AppData/Roaming/Microsoft/ folder.
    That "procedure" will have NO EFFECT whatsoever on a corrupted pst file. Why
    on earth would you think that it does?
    And there's a built-in tool in Office that is specifically designed to
    repair damaged pst files - it's called scanpst.exe.

    All in all a load of rubbish.
    If you are GOING to post, at least post something helpful.

    Yes SCANPST.EXE is inbuilt application provided by Microsoft with all MS Outlook editions. If you are using MS Outlook 2007 then the path of this tool is -C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\SCANPST.EXE
    But this tool is able to repair basic level corruption only for complete Outlook recovery you can use PCVITA Recover Outlook as alternative solution.

    Look working of SCANPST.EXE - [ deleted ]
