I am having the same issue with that error message, but when I change the file “OneNoteOfflineCache.onecache” to .bak, OneNote still does not work. I tried removing those files from that folder all together and restarting the machine as well, but still no luck…I’m running OneNote2007. Any ideas????

I had a similar issue just now, renaming the whole directory 14.0 to 14.0_bak allowed me to bring up onenote. it seemed to rebuild a bunch of things. as far as i can tell, i had one corrupt page. caveat emptor!
