Try uninstalling then reinstalling outlook.  You may have a corruption problem.
Is this where you installed it? If you're not sure, open Explorer and search the drive for outlook.exe Edit the properties of the shortcut to go the correct location. If this is where outlook.exe lives, then it is absolutely corrupted. Reinstall.
