Error message - Outlook Backup addin is not a valid Office add-in

I have a new laptop and after activating my office programs and transferring old files to new computer (this is probably where the problem occured) everytime I try to start Outlook I get the following error message " Outlook Backup addin is not a valid Office add-in" It shuts down and I have to re-boot to access again.

What can a do to remove this add-in that I didn't even know I had?

Start Outlook in safe mode. Hold Ctrl while clicking the Outlook icon.

Disable that add-in. File tab -> options -> add-ins

And/or take a look at: http://www.howto-outlook.com/faq/backupaddin.htm
