Outlook 2007 and Internet Explorer 9

April 18th, 2011 by Kat Kingsley-Hughes

Hmmmm have noticed that since I’ve upgraded to IE9, Outlook is continually crashing (and restarting). You can also reproduce the fault by clicking

Tools | Trust Center

I’ve tested it on three machines (both 32 and 64 bit) and does it every time.

I’ve done some searches but so far no one at Microsoft seems to be aware of this bug.

My only hope right now is to reinstall Outlook 2007 although if I’m going to do that I might as well save my time and upgrade to the newer version (something I’ve been procrastinating for ages!) I will let you know if it fixes the problem!

Update: Upgraded one machine to 2010 and it didn’t fix the problem. It’s likely that it’s an add-in problem. Unfortunately add-ins are found within Trust Center. Running Outlook in safe mode doesn’t seem to help.

OK this works: Solution (at least for now) – uninstall IE9. I did this by:

Windows Control Panel | Programs and Features | View Installed Updates

SelectWindows Internet Explorer 9. Click Uninstall.

If you try this always back up first! The system will need to restart in order to complete the process, so make sure you save any unsaved work.

PLEASE NOTE: I’ve moved this thread over onto PCDoc instead as it breaks my Vexentricity ‘no tech’ rule 😉 If you’re still affected by this problem, please check for updates by following the link.
