    Outlook 2010 (32-bit) Keeps crashing under Windows 8 (64-bit)


    When using Microsoft Outlook 2010 (32-bit), all works fine until I try to open an e-mail with hyperlinks or attached photos in it that is being viewed in "preview" mode. frequently (but not always), Outlook crashes and tries to recover itself. I have run Office Repair, but the issue is still present. I have disabled my firewall/anti-virus program, but it has no effect. Any suggestions?

    Aglad581. I tried all you suggested, to no avail. Eventually I uninstalled Outlook and then re-installed (just a few hours ago); and so far, all seems to work fine as it should (holding thumbs)

    Not really an answer to your question, but why not move away from Outlook? When I installed Windows 8 last night I made a choice to do away with software I could replace with a cloud solution. I use Google Mail for personal email, and then WebMail for business through my own domain. I have just elected to use those instead of the slow bloated program that is Outlook. Same with Google Docs instead of installing Word and Excel (though I did install Word Reader).

    Just an idea for you, but I do realize some people may need Outlook, so my suggestion may not be an ideal solution.
