Hello John, it seems like you have really got a serious problem.
There might be a problem while installing this one. Re-install MS Office and check if it is solved.
Ensure that it is not running in Compatibility mode. You can check this by following these steps:
Right-click on the Outlook.exe >> “Properties” >> “Compatibility” tab. Uncheck all boxes.
Also, if you are using x64 based OS, you also have to: either install the x64 version or allow x86 applications run from the “Control Panel”.
Hope no problem anymore.
