If it's trying to load two instances of Outlook at the same time that will give you problems. Give this a quick try. Go to Start...Run, then type in msconfig. Select the Start-up tab and see if outlook.exe is listed more than once. If it is, uncheck one of them and restart you system and see how it goes.

You can try to repair if you still have your '07 disk. Just make sure all instances of Outlook are closed.

i just ran regseeker and cleared over 2500 invalid entries...
is there anyway of turning off the calendar in outlook? so when it loads the calendar will not.. i think the problem lies in this as there seems to be 2 entries for each and then outlook continues to spin in circles.
