First backup outlook data

**********
Look for *.pst file searching in hidden folders
Mostly it would be found in
C:\Documents and Settings\{your profile name}\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

*************

Then mostly this error would be if some kind of add-in installed in outlook

Try opening outlook in normal mode. If you cannot then open in safe mode
start --> run --> outlook.exe /safe
Now go to tools ---> options --> other ---> advanced options --> COM add-ins
if there is any ad-in remove it
close outlook

open it again and check if the issue is solved

Also if you have norton anti-virus ,temporarily disable it to see if that would help
If you have norton add-in , remove it too to see if that solves the issue
