Can't connect with MS Outlook

This is not a matter of life & death, but I keep getting a message pop up in the middle of my screen saying "Could not connect to Microsoft Outlook - Error 2147221164". I am assuming that this might be something to do with Google Calendar and as such the message is not too surprising as I don't have Outlook installed, I use Windows Live Mail. I'm running Windows 7 Professional. Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can stop this pesky message appearing?

There's lets on the Internet about this problem. Unfortunately, most are asking for help rather than providing an answer, but you might find some of these helpful:

Do you use hotmail?

No to Hotmail

Do you have an e-mail client? It is a Google Calendar Sync problem and seems to be fairly widespread without a definitive solution.

Do you have Office starter pack? Might be worth running Ccleaner.
