Causes of the Problem
The problem is caused by a bug in Microsoft Outlook. When you try to open Outlook, it crashes and gives you the error message. There are two possible causes of this problem.

One possible solution to the error “Cannot start Microsoft Outlook, Set of folders cannot be opened” is to delete the Outlook profile and create a new one. To do this, open the Control Panel and go to Mail. Under Profiles, select the profile you want to delete and click Remove. Once the profile is deleted, restart Outlook and you will be prompted to create a new profile. Another possible solution is to repair the Outlook data files. To do this, open Outlook and go to File > Open & Export > Import/Export. Select “Import from another program or file” and click Next. Select “Outlook Data File (.pst)” and click Next.
