Outlook Stops Responding

Posted on 2013-06-26
Last Modified: 2013-07-08
If multiple calendars selected , and then I go to INBOX - if I come back to Calendar tab .. Outlook may stop responding and restart itself.

Usually what I have to do is uncheck every calendar and only select the one I need when going from INBOX to CALENDAR tab.

New OUTLOOK profile has been created.  New WINDOWS USER profile created.
Any other ideas?

Problem might be caused by addin.

Try running outlook in non addin mode and check.

outlook /safe

type the above command in run box. If it works fine then disable unwanted addins.

How did safe mode go for you?

I safe mode doesnt help eighter

I would tend to say the issue may be related to a corrupt view, or even profile..

I might then try to close outlook
then re-open using
Start>Run>Outlook.exe /cleanviews

The CLose and Re-open again using
Start>Run>OUtlook.exe /cleanprofile

If Still No Luck its possible it could be replated to a broken or corrupt shared calendaer

IN outlook 2007 and 2010 you can clear these by using
Start>Run>Outlook.exe /cleansharing
