Hello iiyama00,

1. Redemption.dll is a module associated with Outlook Redemption from Dmitry Streblechenko.  Disable this addon and other addons. Go to Tools > Options > Other > Advanced Options > Addin Manager or COMM/Addins and disable the addins.

If you cannot open Outlook, do a search for and rename extend.dat file.

2. If no joy, check if an external program running in the background is interfering with Outlook. Check Firewall, antivirus, antispyware, antispam, and all Norton programs. Disable these programs one at a time.

3. If no joy, create a new Outlook profile.

4. Repair Outlook. With Outlook open, go to Help > Detect and Repair.


Hope this helps!
