A critical patch released last week by Windows is causing Outlook to keep crashing, restarting over and over again. This patch was supposed to fix a flaw in the way Windows handles fonts, but has had some unexpected side effects for some Outlook users. Just a few weeks ago, we spoken about the weird Windows patch that was creating confusion world wide, and now it seem they have another problem with their update codes again.

The crash does not appears to occur when an email that contains certain fonts is opened, but when it’s scrolled through. So if you open your email and the Outlook crashes while you are scrolling through, now you know why.

To resolve this problem, go to your Windows Update control panel and uninstalled this offensive patch update – KB 3097877.
