Outlook 2013 has stopped working – 0xc0000005

Another Oulook issue is here. All products from Ofiice 2013 and specially Outlook and Lync were being repeatedly and accidentally crashed (no other program) in W7 64-bit computer.

Error Message: Crashing Outlook from Windows point of view:


Error Event: Crashed application (Outlook) left following trail in Application Log:

Failed Attempts: I tried to repair Ofiice 2013disable add-ins in Officeinstall latest .NET and other things but unfortunately without success to solve the problem.

Solution: All errors indicate nvwgf2umx.dll related issue. This files (Dynamic-link Library) most often belongs to product NVIDIA drivers and this library can be loaded and executed in any running process such as Outlook. Due to this reason I checked display adapter and its driver:

Updating process for driver informed me: Windows has determined the driver software for your device is up to date. It is know Windows issue so official driver is needed directly from Nvidia site (310.90-quadro-notebook-win8-win7-winvista-64bit-international-whql.exe). New driver solved the problem so it would be great to check always the associated DLL at the beginning.
