possible that serious problem with outlook , did you check the event viewer? what the error raised in application?

Thanks for your swift repsonses.

I just un-installed Office Live Connector from Remove Programs and that has fixed the outlook issues.

Now i just need to re-install Live Connector so i can download email from hotmail again.

Surely running outlook in safe mode would have disabled this?

outlook in safe mode will disable all add-ins like windows live connector and anti-virus add ins, you should work around add-ins , just disable one-by-one and run otulook each time you disable add in  and see the result , once you found an error with add-ins you may have repair it again , for example if outlook connector for anti virus caused this error you should close outlook and goto control panel -> add/remove programs -> click on the program who cause this issue and repair installation again
