I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This has been buzzing all over EE today.  Find the KB with the office or outlook update and remove it from one workstation to see if that rectifies the issue.  If so, you can use one of the enterprise methods for bulk machines in this link.

Multiple people have complained about it today and it is due to a patch installed last night.

I would remove kb3104540 first, reboot and see if the problem goes away.  Try that.

Inside kb3104540 there is a slew of other updates.  You may want to narrow it down to the Office 2010 kbs, pull those out test and then take it from there.

Apparently KB3097877 is the cause, reported by a few sites today
Uninstall that one and reboot, test Outlook again...
