A couple of days ago Outlook 2007 runing in Windows 7 Professional SP1 began failing whenever it trys to open a separate window. For example, I can turn on the reading pane view and see an email. But when I try to open the email, reply to or create a new email I get the "searching for a solution" dialog and Outlook crashes.

I have done the following:
 - Run detect and repair
 - Run scanpst and repair any problems
 - Create  new Outlook profile
 - Uninstall Windows Live
 - Uninstall and reinstall Office 2007
 - Apply all service packs (Windows 7 and Office)
 - Scan for Viruses (AVG) and Malware (Malwarebytes)
 - Search the registry at local machine and current user for non-Microsoft addins (none registered)  

Outlook runs in safe mode so it looks like some kind of addin issue. Any ideas?

The following is a copy of the Application Event Log Entry:

Try renaming the outcmd.dat so that Outlook recreates it.  This has fixed the same problem for other people.

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook

Also try disabling and add-ins and see if that helps.
