Outlook Crash and Add-in Problem in Outlook 2016

Over the last week, five staff in our office have started to have random crashes of Outlook 2016. The issue is not reproducible at will and in each case, Outlook restarts and opens an error dialogue banner stating that add-ins have caused Outlook to start slowly or crash.

I start to troubleshoot and i found out that in workstations without Forcepoint Client installed that not having this issue.

So the first thing i did i add the application to the bypass endpoint policy in the force-point admin portal.

And then i checked with forcepoint and find out they release a new endpoint client that resolve this issue.

After deploying the new endpoint using GPO the problem has resolved.
