Typed "outlook /restore" in run, pressed enter, Outlook opened but again in safe mode so did not solve the problem. Thank you for trying but not the solution.

Hi shanknomore, it seems it is because of last Windows Update (KB3114409). Just uninstall it and wait till Microsoft solve it.

Hi Jarda,

How do you uninstall a specific Windows Update  (KB3114409)?  

Thanks,

Bob
Jaroslav LatalMSPCommented:
go to add/remove programs, click "show updates", find KB3114409 and uninstall it. You should disable that update, so it won't install again.

 Let me know if it helped.

Jarda - the update was uninstalled so is no longer found in the list under "Installed Updates" in "Programs and Features." I went to Windows Update and clicked on "4 important updates are available."  The list does not contain KB3114409.
Jaroslav LatalMSPCommented:
hmm, the update should appear in "important updates are available". If not, try to "check for updates"..

Hi Jarda,

Checked for updates. KB3114409 was the only one on the list and it is now hidden. Is there any harm in keeping it hidden forever?

Thanks again for all of your help!
