Outlook 2013 crashes on IMAP sync Windows 8.1

Can anyone suggest answer.
I'm not keen on completely reinstalling and losing a lot of my current outlook setup.
Most often than not, when I open Outlook when sync starts, an error dialog is opened "Microsoft Outlook has stopped working" with no other options than debug or close program.


Unhandled exception at 0x5E3DB33A (OUTLMIME.DLL) in OUTLOOK.EXE: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0x00000000.

You could try running a repair from the add remove section of 8.1.

There are ,however,some patches from good old M$ that can cause this.

Here are some hotfixes that may help.

I back revved all my customers to Ol2K10 as the patches that M$ has released the past couple of times have been dreadful.

thanks very much.
I had tried a repair from a third party installer/uninstaller, which hadn't solved it.
Doing the same in control panel, and using change option, seems to have worked (so far).
I the error returns i'll try your other suggestions.
