I agree with the Sage that third party plug-ins are the common cause behind such kind of errors and disturbance in Microsoft Outlook. So, open the Outlook in safe mode using “outlook.exe/safe” command and disable all of them.

If it does not work, then you should go for scanpst.exe or Inbox Repair Tool because I guess there is a error which not allowing Outlook to work properly and this tool can help you to overcome from these errors by scanning the Outlook Data File.

There are a number of factors which can produce an interruption in Outlook, for more I think you should go with given Microsoft Link:

Note: As a last solution, create a new Outlook profile.
