  1. I just completed the steps to remove a virus from my computer with the help of Broni in the malware forum. I went to launch Outlook and I am prompted to create a new profile. I have searched the computer for a .PST file and none are found. Is there any way to get my profile back so I wont loose all my contacts?

    Try Recuva. If the PST was somehow deleted, maybe it can find/recover it.
