There are a lot of reasons why outlook just hangs.

1. Missing updates and hotfixes - I had a client who had outlook hang 25 seconds, turned out to be a hotfix from Microsoft that resolved it.

2. Add-ons - you can try to start your outlook in safemode - go to start, type outlook.exe /safe.


Let me know if it hangs after safe mode and updates/hotfixes and we can continue troubleshooting.

I started Outlook in Safe mode - is there anything I'm to do there or just work in safe mode from now on?

How can I get hotfixes?

Thanks.

BTW, I meant to say Outlook 2010 NOT 2012 - sorry.

Its all good.

Safemode is for testing purposes only, hopefully we will get it resolved soon and you go back to normal mode.

Try to work for a bit and see if you can re-create the issue, if it works properly in safe mode, the next step would be to disable the add-ons and try enabling them one by one until Outlook hangs again.

Updates can be obtained through "Windows Updates" on your machine, hotfixes need to be requested.

Here is a good website that lists them all.

What Service Pack is your Office? Latest Office 2010 is SP2.

Should be under "Help" "About" in outlook.

Let me know.
