Outlook 2013 freezes when deleting a calendar event

When deleting an event in the calendar, Outlook freezes.  I have disabled the cached exchange mode.
Due to limited access, I have not tried outlook.exe /safe.

I found one solution for you as given:

1. Close Outlook 2013
2. Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15
4. Download the older WWLIB.DLL (15.0.4517.1505) from here: https://citrix.sharefile.com/d/s2d8d60fbe2b4d3d8
5. Place WWLIB.DLL into C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15
6. Open Outlook

Hopefully your issue will be solved.

I found this article as well but a note attached was that they didn't know what possible side affects it would have.  I could not find that file in the location you specified so I did a search in the Microsoft Office folder and it did not find the WWLIB.DLL file.  I proceeded to copied the file to the Office15 directory and tested Outlook Calendar, same results, Office freezes when deleting a calendar event.

I tried /safe and that allowed deleting calendar events without freezing.  Started Outlook in normal mode, opened the Add-ins and disabled all of them, when I click OK, Outlook freezes again.  Force closed Outlook and open again and the Add-ins are still enabled.  Started in /safe and disabled all the addins and enabled them one at a time.  Found that the Kaspersky AV and anti-spam plugins are the culprit.  Once I disabled both plugins, it started working in normal mode with no freezing.

Thanks for the input Swati

Found  that resolution by disabling both Kaspersky plugins, one for AV and the other for anti-spam.
