Upgrade to Parallels seems to cause Outlook to open in Safe mode

Just today I loaded the update that has been offered for some time whenever I launch Parallels on an iMac.

As soon as Windows launched, I straightaway found that Microsoft Outlook would only open in Safe mode, so denying me access to customised toolbars and some add-ins.

I cannot find any way to start Outlook without it going straight into Safe mode and it gives no information about why it is doing this.

From web searches, I have un-checked all add-ins but it makes a difference.   The main add-ins I’m aware of adding in recent months are for Dragon Naturally Speaking and a Sperry Software ‘always BCC’ and- in.

This is very frustrating so I would appreciate any assistance please.

Thanks in advance for your help.
