Did you try creating a new profile? Might help "clear" things up.

Open the folder:

%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

Open in new window


Deleted all "OAB" files and files that begin with this character "~"

Then click - START - run - outlook.exe /cleanprofile

See if that might help?
