Office XP- Outlook "not responding"

By SoilSavers ·
New Pent4 mach 1G ddr ram OEM install of XP. i installed Office XP Small Business (3rd application installed)within 48 hrs Outlook started "application not responding" soulution was close app and restart app. It worked for 15min-2hrs then happen again. I installed SP 1 & 2 and NOW IT HANGS EVERY TIME YOU TRY TO DO ANYTHING!! Since this is the PRIME machine my CFO (and wife!!!!) uses, there is of course NO PRESSURE. I have moved her to Outlook Express but that don't solve the Outlook problem, just avoids it... any help to a marginally tech competent CIO would be appreciated.

Hmmm. I had a situation like this except with Office 2000. Are you running any other applications at the same time?

The solution that worked for me was to uninstall only Outlook and reinstall it. Which worked quite well and I haven't had anyproblems since. I'll try and think if there is another way of going about it.

Will it start with Outlook.exe /safe switch?
If so, then try renaming the outcmd.dat file to outcmd.old. If Outlook opens normally then, your views file was corrupt.

Try running scanpst.exe

Disable the Instant Messenger service in Outlook under Tools>Otions>Other>Instant Messenger
