Then Test

If still happening
Close outlook and open using
start>Run>outlook.exe /safe

if it works here, its going to be addin related
we can look at disabling it in registry

So with the /safe it runs as normal minus all the add-ins?

Yup and is a pretty clear indication its related to an add in

You then go to the registry at

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Addins

Note all the add ins and their load behaivor

Then set them all to 0

restart outlook and test
If okay close outlook, go back to registry
Re-enable one of the add ins to their previous settings
test OUtlook

Continue process until you find the faulting add in
