i just installed Office 2016 on a Windows 7 pro 64 bit computer after uninstalling Office 2007.  Everything works except Outlook.  When starting it or trying to create a new profile I get the error: the time limit for logging on was reached while waiting for system resources.  try again.

I even get that when trying to delete the old profile.  I get the same error on 4 other identical PCs.  However, it works fine on a Windows 8 PC and a Windows 7 32 bit PC.

Any ideas?  I am at my wits end and Microsoft support is clueless.  I have tried every support article i could find as well as worked with Microsoft for over 3 hours now.  I do not have Sales Force installed.
