    In the past 2 weeks I've been experiencing a problem in Outlook 2007. For
    some reason the Outllook Reading pane completely stopped working and is
    blank. I've tried resetting the reading pane by turning it off and on as well
    as rebooting but nothing seems to work... any ideas as to how I can fix
    this?Could this be related to a recent Windows update?

  2. Try the Office Diagnostics thing in the Help menu.

  3. Usually, errors like that are problems with the 'profile' (Outlook.PST) You
    could try a new one, archiving the old one in the Options, till you see if
    that helps. It's possible to "Import" the old data into the new profile.
