I am running Outlook 2016 on Windows 10.  Chrome is the default browser.  All of the applications are up to date.

When clicking on links embedded in emails in Outlook 2016 I get an error message that the link cannot open.  I can make that message go away, and then have the links work, by running a repair on my Office 2016 installation via the Control Panel.  BUT within the next day or so the problem returns and I have to do it all again.

I have gone through the Outlook Add-ins and downsized them considerably.   I suspect that there is something in Chrome  that causes the problem but I can't nail that down.  For now, Edge is inadequate for my needs so I would like to stick with Chrome.

Any insights would be appreciated.
