Outlook not responding, stuck at “Processing,” stopped working, or freezes


I had this error when I first installed the trial version but I don’t recall what I had to do to solve it. I’ve already run MS Repair options, and then uninstalled and re-installed Office. No, it doesn’t open in safe mode any differently. No, I don’t have any add-ons. I’ve tried various solutions in the Forum but none work.

The rest of Office appears to work OK. I would be grateful for any ideas on how to fix this. Stan Metheny. This thread is locked.

Hi Stan, Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for posting.

Thank You. How satisfied are you with this reply? Thanks for your feedback, it helps us improve the site. Thanks for the reply, but none of those solutions worked. As with the preview version, Outlook Office will work just fine if I set up gmail as the only email account.

But as soon as I try to add a synch with Outlook. From what I can see, we’re still living with the – apparently eternal – inability of Microsoft to synch its own email system with its own Outlook product. This despite all the advertising and claims. Not sure why I would continue paying a monthly fee for Office without Outlook. The purpose of moving back to Office was to synch all email and contacts across the board. If Outlook can only work with gmail, then I might as well revert to google software for everything.

William Kauffman. Stan, I had the same problem and after 5 hours on the phone with microsoft, no help. I eventually found that you can right click on the outlook icon and run the troubleshoot compatibilty it will ask to revert to old versions that worked and I tried that and it seemed to work.

Hope that someone can help me get my office picture manager back. I have an identical problem, first on a Win7 PC and now on a brand new Win8 system, where Office was the first thing that I installed.

If MS cannot even provide a working version of Outlook on a brand new system, what hope is there for them? In reply to srunderwood’s post on March 14, I too have the problem.

Microsoft , Outlook It is becoming important to repair Outlook to get away from the further loss. If your Outlook data files are severely corrupted and so Outlook stopped working, all you need do is download the trusted PST repair tool and fix the issue as soon as possible to avoid further damage to the data files.

The most common and the main reason is corrupt or damaged Outlook Data Files. Add-ins that interfere with the applications and the antivirus conflicting with the Outlook also leads to freezing of the application. Note: Prior trying any of these fixes, it is suggested to ensure that your Office application is up-to-date. If the Microsoft Office software is updated and you still face Outlook stopped working error, then follow below-listed troubleshooting techniques one after the other in the order.

If your Outlook problem is due to corrupt Outlook profile, it is recommended to create a new profile. Once you create a new profile, replace the existing profile and re-add email accounts to this new profile. Certain add-ins may give rise to compatibility issues and lead to “Outlook has stopped working” error. To ensure this start Outlook in Safe Mode. If Outlook works fine after disabling add-ins, then update respective add-ins. If you find no update, then get rid of them.

If Outlook doesn’t start after disabling the add-in, then repeat the same procedure for other add-ins one by one. If all add-ins are unchecked and still Outlook stopped working message appears then try the next troubleshooting. From Control Panel , uninstall Outlook application.

Then, download Outlook from Microsoft official site and install. Run a Windows or Microsoft update and verify you have latest device drivers.

If you are still unable to access data on the outlook this could be due to sever corruption on the data files.
