Outlook crashing after Office SP2 update RRS feed

  • Question

  • I started getting numerous calls about Outlook crashing constantly seconds after it opens and sometimes it would remain open for a little while then crash.

    Steps I took troubleshooting without a resolution:

    1. Ran scanpst.exe
    2. Ran Outlook Product Stability Diagnostics
    3. Created a new Mail Profile
    4. Repaired Office in the Programs and Features
    5. Ran Windows Updates
    6. Updated all drivers

    I noticed that Outlook was running fine for some in the morning, then their computer wanted to reboot for updates. Then Outlook quit working. At that time I attempted to remove the Service Pack using oarpman.exe with no luck. After that failed, I then used system restore to take the computer back a day before the service pack was installed and Outlook ran perfectly. It seems that after Office SP2 was removed and than reapplied it worked.

    Anybody else have this issue?
