Resolve Microsoft® Outlook® 2010 that has stopped working
Outlook 2010 has been equipped with much more advanced features than its earlier versions. With Outlook 2010, you are able to send and receive e-mails via your mobile device too, and you can change the formats of the e-mails too if you wish to. If you have installed Office 2010 successfully, then you will be able to start enjoying Outlook 2010 instantly. But sometimes, you may notice that Outlook 2010 has stopped working suddenly.
The following points will tell you why Outlook 2010 has stopped working suddenly and how to solve the issue.
- Malware attack
- Cluttered mail box
- Problem with Office 2010
If Outlook 2010 has stopped working suddenly, then the most common reason for this may be that you have received an e-mail that had a volatile virus infection. In order to avoid such a situation, you should keep your antivirus program updated and run the scan regularly. If your Outlook 2010 has stopped working and you suspect that this is because of some malware attack in your system, the first thing that you should do is to run an antivirus scan even if you recently did that. In most of the cases, this will detect and remove the problem and you will be able to start using the program once again at its full strength. If your antivirus program is not able to detect it or remove it, you may need to clean up your PC or even reformat the hard disk drive.
Cluttered Mail Box
There are several mail boxes in Outlook 2010 including Inbox and boxes for Sent Items, Drafts and Archives. If you have stored too many items in these boxes and they contain too many attachments, then Outlook may become too much cluttered up and it may stop working suddenly. In order to avoid such a situation, you should keep deleting read or unnecessary e-mails from your mail boxes and try to store e-mails without attachments only. If some attachments are absolutely necessary, then download and store them on your computer and delete them from Outlook 2010.
Problem with Office 2010
If Outlook 2010 has stopped working, this may be because there is some problem with the entire Office Suite 2010 in your PC. The first thing you need to do is to check whether all other programs in your system are working fine or not, including Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. If they are also experiencing problems, then may be the copy of your Office 2010 has become corrupt and you may need to reinstall it on your system.
