    Unable to run the utilitiy scanpst.exe on Outlook 2007

    I'm running Office 2007 on Windows XP Pro and Outlook crashed today for me with the following error:
    Errors have been detected in the file c:\documents and settings\mikeb\local settings\applications\data\microsoft\outlook\outlook1.ost. Quit Outlook and then use the inbox repair tool (scanpst.exe) to diagnose the repair the errors in the file.

    But, I did a search and can't find scanpst.ext , so I'm not even able to ge into outlook.
