Outlook 2010 Hanging and locking entire computer

Just installed Outlook 2010 (as part of office 2010 prefoessional 64bit)

Outlook 2010 just seems to hang almost all of the time.
Every 5 minutes or so, it hangs and goes to "not responding"
Sometimes if I leave it for 5-10 minutes is comes back but other times nothing after even an hour or so...

I've tried outlook safe mode and this makes no difference.
I've got rid of every non MS standard addin - makes no difference

I've even had a few blue screens of death as well.

When it does hang and I then try to reboot my pc, windows 7 will not log off nor shutdown.
Just sits there saying "logging off" forever.

Also can't for the life of me get rid of the "Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfil the messaging request...." at windows start.

The PC is a fairly new top end spec PC, with all of the latest windows 7 64-bit software and upgrades on it.

Your help is very much appreciated with this one.....
