Microsoft Office Outlook Connector Error

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I am using MS-Outlook 2010 on my Windows Vista computer. I can’t seem to access hotmail mailbox and giving me an error telling me to upgrade to the latest version of Outlook Connector with choices to Upgrade Now or Remind Me Later. Choosing Upgrade Now does not have effect except for it will close the outlook window. How can I fix this so I can access my mails again?
