Are you running any antivirus email protection? If so try to shut down the antivirus software and try opening outlook. If this fixes the problem, then try reinstalling the anti-virus software.

The uninstaled Norton and was was able to open outlook but When I installed Norton again the same thing happens.
I´ve also tried repairing and reinstalling Outlook but it seems that I cannot have Norton and Outlook at the same time.
What can I do about this ? Do I have to change to a diferrent antivirus ?
