Security software such as antivirus and anti-malware ensure the security of the system, but they might detect false positives for the programs and tasks that they cannot identify. Such software safeguards the files in the system and does not allow other applications and software to cause changes to the files. Therefore, even if the applications included in the Office Suite such as Outlook try to modify the files, the antivirus program restricts it. They can also cause permission issues.

If the non-responding issue of Outlook is because of the security software in your system, you can disable it for the time being. Another way is to try to update the security software and check if the problem solves.
