Worst error message ever?

The error message that Outlook gave me must be one of the worst ones I've ever seen.

Errors have been detected in the file c:\Documents and Settings\outlook.ost. Quit Outlook and all mail-enabled applications, and then use the Inbox repair tool (Scanpst.exe) to diagnose and repair the errors in the file. For more information about the Inbox repair tool, see Help.

If they know what to do, and have created a tool to fix this, then why do they bother the user with the painful details?

My clients reported this error many times, and in some cases i used the built in tool i.e. scanpst.exe but after successfully running the utility, i land in the same ground, and get the same error message. For some of the clients who had some important data in Outlook OST file, i had performed ost pst conversion and provide them the resulting pst file that can be directly accessed with Outlook.
