Outlook 2010 Closes/crashes when closing one Email

Outlook 2010 (32 bit) closes without warning when the user closes an email. Other emails can be open in the background and these are lost if they are new, or replies to emails. The user doesn't get any warning like "Do you want to save changes", etc

Outlook 2010 has all the updates and has service pack 2 installed. The OS is Windows 7 64 bit.

This is random, but can happen at least twice in one day. but only effects one user.

Hi jcimarron,

Sorry I should of said we done the Repair on Office/Outlook now twice for this user. His Outlook Profile is stored as a OST file, so we can't do a scanpst.

Hi PDIS,

Sorry for the long delay. We've un-installed the update and rolled back the laptop to an even earlier point in time. We've found out the user had Outlook and the Outlook message set to 'full screen' and when the user was clicking on X (in the upper right), he was actually double clicking and closing the Main Outlook screen as well. It does not explain why Outlook was not prompting for 'do you want to save draft messages', however, having the user use the Outlook message in the Restore Down model has helped.
