If you think your Microsoft Outlook has really a big problem and you need to reinstall it, try following these steps.

But be sure to have the installer of Microsoft Outlook or else you won’t be able to install it back after it has been removed.

You need first to uninstall Microsoft Outlook.

Click Start then Control Panel.
Click Add or Remove Programs.
Look for Microsoft Outlook on the list of installed programs, click it to select then click the Change/Remove button.
Follow the on-screen instructions.

After it has been removed, you can now install it back to fix any corrupted file and restore its settings back to default including some of the settings that you might have customized.

If you have the installer disc for Microsoft Outlook, load it in the optical drive or DVD drive then wait for it to load.

But if it doesn’t load, open Windows Explorer then browse the content of the disc.

Double-click setup.exe to launch the installer of Microsoft Outlook then just follow the on-screen instructions.
