I've just had this problem occur my new computer which is running Windows 7-64:
I have had no major problems with Outlook since I installed it a week ago (apart from a problem importing contacts which I have overcome).
Now suddenly,when I open MS Outlook it starts up with a different screen view to that which I had previously, and after about 5-10 seconds crashes with the message 'MS Office has stopped working.....Windows will close and notify you when a solution is available'.
I have tried system restore to no avail, and when I start it in Safe Mode it seems to operate OK.
Any ideas please?
