Hello, when trying to search in outlook, my computer keeps saying "Something went wrong and your search couldn't be completed. It looks like there's a problem with your network connections. Let's look at your computer instead."  Everything else works fine - just can't search for anything from the network/server.  Any ideas how to fix this please?

@helena27b Try repairing your Office programs from the Program and Feature in control panel.

 

- To get to your Program and Feature, on the taskbar below where it say "Type here to search" type in appwiz.cpl and hit Enter. This will take you Program and Features (you'll see Uninstall or change a program above).

 

-If you are on Office 365, select the Microsoft Office 365 xxxx program from the list, Right Click and select Change > Select Quick Repair and the Repair. 

 

If Quick Repair option does fix this problem, try the Online Repair option.
