If you are able to work with Outlook in safe Mode without any problem then the issue might be due to add-ins. In order to disable the add-ins follow the steps given below:

1) click on File< Options< Add-ins  In Outlook.

2) Under Manage select COM Add-ins.

3) Click on GO options beside Manage, uncheck all the add-ins and click Ok.

4) Try to open Outlook and check if it works fine.

you could try to close Outlook and rename the "extend.dat" file in your userprofile:

Windows 7 and Vista: "C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\"

Windows XP: "C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Windows"
