    Outlook 2010 (32-bit) Errors under Windows 8 (64-bit)

    Outlook 2010 (32-bit), operating under Windows 8 (64-bit) is presenting me with repeated random crashes. I can download mail without any problems; I can similarly send mail with no problems. I can read mail in the preview pane and even click on links in the preview pane with no problems. But SOMETIMES (not always, that's what puzzles me) when I try to open an e-mail, I get the error "Microsoft Outlook has stopped working..." and then it sometimes manages to re-start, and sometimes instructs me to close the program. I have sent myself plain text e-mails and sometimes they can be opened just fine, and at other times they cause the crash when I try to open them. On a few occasions I have also experienced the crash when pressing the Enter Key to start a new paragraph whilst composing a new e-mail. I have never had this problem under Windows 7 (64-bit). I have the same antivirus and firewall setup as that which worked under Windows 7 and the same add-ons are active. I have run Microsoft Office repair, but still have this same randomly appearing error. Any ideas/suggestions?

    Have you tried disabling the add-ons?
