As stated by the Microsoft technical support, many users called in to say that the OffCAT had detected issues in the Office suite of applications installed in their system. Some of the commonly found issues were the occurrence of hyperlinks and registry entries in Microsoft Outlook.

Another advantage of using this Office Configuration Analyzer Tool to check the Outlook issues is that it contains links to Microsoft’s support articles. This means that if you have encountered an issue in any of the Office application installed in your computer, you can have OffCAT scan it. Once scanned, you would be informed about the existing issue and would be provided with links, listed in the report.
