Reasons that stop Microsoft® Outlook from starting correctly and ways to resolve this problem
What prevents Microsoft Outlook from starting correctly? How can this problem be resolved?
Microsoft provides many applications to make working with Windows easier and more efficient. Microsoft Outlook is one such application. Microsoft Outlook is primarily an e-mailing application and it can be used to perform all e-mail-related tasks on a Windows computer (including sending, receiving, forwarding, attaching and so on). Microsoft Outlook also has features such as calendar, to-do list, notes, Contact Manager, Task Manager and so on. However, there are some issues that may come up with the use of Microsoft Outlook. These problems include Microsoft Outlook not sending or receiving mails, Microsoft Outlook not starting up, Microsoft Outlook crashing or application not responding. Microsoft Outlook installed on your system may not be starting up because of reasons such as issues with system files associated with Microsoft Outlook, registry related errors, some incompatible service running in the background preventing Microsoft Outlook from starting up and so on.
The following details gives users more information regarding ways to prevent and fix starting problems with Microsoft Outlook:
- Check system files
- Clean system registry
- Verify compatibility
Check system files
Microsoft Outlook installed on your system is associated with many system files on the Operating System. If these system files somehow get damaged or corrupt, then Microsoft Outlook will not be able to start up. All users having starting problems with Microsoft Outlook are suggested to check system files on the Operating System (OS) using default system file checker and if some system files are damaged, the OS will have to be repaired to solve the issue. Checking integrity of system files on a regular basis and repairing the OS will help to prevent such issues from coming up.
Clean system registry
Windows installed on your system has a database of information known as System Registry. All applications installed on Windows computers have some associated registry entries. As registry entries are created automatically, errors can develop within system registry over time. Clashes between registry entries of Microsoft Outlook and other unwanted entries can cause starting problems with Microsoft Outlook. Such problems can be fixed by cleaning the registry of the system using registry cleaning software and cleaning and maintaining registry on a regular basis will help prevent such issues.
Microsoft Outlook is totally compatible with Windows Operating Systems. However, Microsoft Outlook may not be compatible with some third-party applications installed on the system. If services of Microsoft Outlook are clashing with incompatible third-party services running in the background, then Microsoft Outlook will not start. Such problems can be solved by uninstalling incompatible applications or programs. Checking compatibility of third- party applications with all components of Windows including Microsoft Outlook will prevent such problems.
