    Thanks for that. Worked like a charm in fixing the Outlook Today problem. I had to make a few changes in the "Customize Outlook Today" window, but otherwise back to normal.

    I uninstalled Update KB3114409 and Outlook 2010 no longer starts in Safe Mode. I then tried to hide the update using the Troubleshooter in this guide https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/8...dows-10-a.html This didn't find Update KB3114409 and it also wasn't found when I ran Windows Update again. I'm now wondering if Microsoft have withdrawn Update KB3114409 until they fix it?

    Update - yes they have pulled the update see http://www.infoworld.com/article/301...look-2010.html

    This is about December 8, 2015, update for Outlook 2010 (KB3114409)

    Today, I received a slew of updates via Windows Update. When I went to open Outlook 2010, it would ONLY open in Safe Mode. It would not open in regular (?) mode. After digging around for about 2 hours, and doing the usual disabling add-ins, etc., I found that this update is supposed to give Administrators the option to never have Outlook open in Safe Mode, among other fixes. See these 2 pages.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3114305. However, when I went to the registry to try to enable this, I found i didn't have the referenced key.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3114409

    However, for me, it seemed to do the opposite. It only allowed me to open in safe mode. Anyway, long story short, I uninstalled this update and after a reboot I could immediately open Outlook in normal mode.

    Hopefully, this helps someone who may have had this issue.

    And hopefully, it won't reinstall itself and start the issue over again.
    Identical symptoms here in SC. Will MS fix this? My skill set below removal of the update

    Thank-you. Uninstall worked great. And yes, hopefully the new update is modified to either correct the condition or add the key to be able to turn safe on and off.

    As Steve C has posted on Reply #22, the update has been pulled by Microsoft. It won't happen again...... I hope.

    Good to hear.
    Don't sell yourself short. Nothing is above your skill set. Just ask and do it.

    Thanks for the tips on removal. I am unhappy with updates downloading automatically as I often use mobile data and I do not need to pay a fortune for a download that could wait a few hours until I am on WiFi. As a consequence I have stopped the update process from running:

    How To Disable Windows 10 Automatic Updates !! - Forums - CNET

    This is perhaps a little drastic but I can set it running every month or so.

    I'm also disappointed that with last night's updates my PC settings went back to day 1 with W10. As well as highjacking Outlook 2010 it changed my file extension associations and the toolbar settings (which Classic Shell half-recovered from but which still needed further tweaking from me).

    Only KB3114409 needs to be uninstalled; this solved opening only in Safe Mode and all the various settings that it changed and would not keep.

    Microsoft has withdrawn this update now.
