You should avoid using or creating links if you don't have any purpose with them, even if the software is asking you. I haven't see any issues like these on the web, and no user ever encountered. However, you can try repairing the software from the Uninstall a program section in Control Panel. If you've installed a plugin or an application that works with Outlook, remove it and then close and restart Outlook a few times. I think this error is caused by a third party application on your computer. Close all the apps and then leave only the Outlook running.
