Have you installed any addons to outlook? Is ActiveSync or something the like running on your system?
Have you made sure that after you've quit outlook, there's no more outlook.exe in the process list of taskmanager?

Oh, there's even the name of the application that causes the problem: SearchProtocolHost.exe

Do you have Windows Desktop Search or something like this activated?
Try to execute the following command in Start -> Run -> cmd

net stop wsearch

Afterwards, try again.
