Outlook freezes

Postby jmm4jmc » Tue Nov 07, 2006 5:08 pm

Today when I open outlook (office xp), it freezes right away and I have to use ctrl+ del. I have have done a repair install which was a reinstall and still the same. I have also noticed that my computer (or commands) seems to freeze for a couple of seconds and this happens every 30 seconds on the dot. commands freeze and then about 2 seconds later the hour glass shows and its back to normal. then it happens again 30 seconds later. I don't know if this has to do with outlook freezing.

I have ran avg, spybot, adaware, and hijackthis, which I posted in the spyware forum. I have been fighting this all day, I'm ready to try an clean install of office but I don't want to loose my outlook files and email. I can't even open it to back up the files.

if all else fail I'm going to do an xp repair and reinstall sp2 and updates.

any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Jim
