    I was running vista 64 ultimate with ms office 2007 long story put short ended up with a virus. My brother fixed it up finding a registry entry that was hiding it ms security essentials took care of it from there. but office was destroyed. My pst file was there and intact. but I can't access it. Ran hirens bcd and tried to unlock it. got error code:5 access denied

    Does anyone know how I can get my emails back? I saved the pst file and swithed hdd to a fresh install of win7 with office 2007. the file would not import and copying the file over made outlook lock up

    If locked .pst file is your issue, then you should unlock it. Read this blog on WordPress: How to unlock password protected PST files of MS Outlook. You can search this blog on Google. The blog will help you lock an Outlook .pst file and unlock it as well.
