It won't allow me to restart, so i turned off power; still shows:


The application MIcrosoft Database Utility canceled restart. To try again, quit Microsoft Database utility and choose restart.


 


i cannot find Microsoft Database Utility.


 


mac

ok, rebuild the identity this way please Mac

Quit all applications.

Hold down the Options (alt) key on the keyboard, and then start Entourage. Do not let go of the Option (alt) key until you see the Database Utility window.

Then rebuild your identity there please.

Once done, try to open Entourage and let me know if it still gives you this error please.
