Outlook 2010 stuck on loading profile

When I attempt to start outlook, it gets stuck on loading profile for hours.  I've attempted to uninstall and reinstall, but I get the same problem.

The issue I had was that if I rebooted, I could open outlook without any problems. If I closed outlook and then tried to reopen outlook it would then freeze on "Loading Profile".  This article seemed to leed me down the right path.

Once I disabled everything I could, I went into the task manager and began to kill processes one at a time.  I noticed the first time I started outlook it created a Agent.exe.  Once I killed this process Outlook started right up.

Best of Luck,

Craig

I was finally able to get outlook to complete loading by manually killing the process com.apple.Outlook.client.exe that iTunes uses to communicate with outlook in order to sync contacts and/or appointments.  I'm not sure if I will have to kill this process each and every time.  I'll have to fiddle around more with the iTunes settings to see if I can get iTunes to NOT launch com.apple.Outlook.client.exe at startup.
