Outlook 2010 crashes when I click on new or open Outlook Data File

Outlook 2010 crashes when I click on new or open Outlook Data File, along with open calendar. I never even get the opportunity to select the PST file I want to open. It crashes as soon as I hit the "Open Outlook Data File' button. Everything else seems to work just fine. I have already recreated my profile and done a repair and rebooted. Still having the problem.

Here are the problem details:

Try these:

Perform clean boot.

a.    Start the computer in safe mode with command prompt.

b.    On the command prompt type “msconfig.exe” without quotation and hit enter.

c.    Then follow the steps in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

after disabling third party services if it does not gives any issue then the problem with add in.. which you need to remove from IE and verify

This is an issue caused by accessing a pst file over the network.
