[Spambayes] Outlook Plugin Crashing Outlook

Something (not spambayes!) crashed my system today and now Outlook won't load with the plugin installed (but will without).  For some reason nothing appears in the trace on launching Outlook (apart from the loading message), but if I execute manager.py, I get the following (along with the same windows error dialog saying that errors have been caused and the program will be closed).

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "D:\PROGRA~1\Python22\lib\site-packages\Pythonwin\pywin\framework\scriptutils.py", line 310, in RunScript
    exec codeObject in __main__.__dict__
  File "D:\CVS_Modules\spambayes\Outlook2000\manager.py", line 603, in ?
  File "D:\CVS_Modules\spambayes\Outlook2000\manager.py", line 578, in main
    mgr = GetManager(verbose=verbose_level)
  File "D:\CVS_Modules\spambayes\Outlook2000\manager.py", line 566, in GetManager
    outlook = win32com.client.Dispatch("Outlook.Application")
  File "D:\PROGRA~1\Python22\lib\site-packages\win32com\client\__init__.py", line 95, in Dispatch
    dispatch, userName = dynamic._GetGoodDispatchAndUserName(dispatch,userName,clsctx)
  File "D:\PROGRA~1\Python22\lib\site-packages\win32com\client\dynamic.py", line 84, in _GetGoodDispatchAndUserName
    return (_GetGoodDispatch(IDispatch, clsctx), userName)
  File "D:\PROGRA~1\Python22\lib\site-packages\win32com\client\dynamic.py", line 72, in _GetGoodDispatch
    IDispatch = pythoncom.CoCreateInstance(IDispatch, None, clsctx, pythoncom.IID_IDispatch)
com_error: (-2146959355, 'Server execution failed', None, None)

It seems that the problem is with the win32com.client.Dispatch call.  (Or, I suspect, my Outlook).  I've dumped the .ini, the message stores and the config pickle in case the problem was with any of them, but that hasn't helped.

Any suggestions about what to do?
