This one is a stumper.

I found it best to leave IE as the default browser (IE, Tools, Options) and to not allow addons to either IE or Outlook.

And if this is the 64 bit Outlook or IE, I have no fix (Microsoft seems to be gone to lunch on that.) If you must run that version, task Microsoft for the fix I have yet to see.
