Outlook 2003 and IE not responding

By hal.potter ·
I have a user that has a Dell Optiplex 280 with WinXP Pro, an 80 GB HD (66 Gig free) and 1GB RAM. When he opens MS Outlook 2003 the processor hits 100%, the fans start racing and outlook won't respond. Opening IE also does the same thing. When opening Firefox, it works just fine. Even opening Firefox with IE and/or Outlook open and not responding firefox and other programs will work. It is just those two programs. I have run a virus/spyware scan and found no problems. I have also defraged the HD and it is good.

This has happened several times, each time I reinstall windows and all the apps and it works for a while, then the problem returns. This time it has been fine for almost 4 months. Now the problem has returned.

Wondering if anyone else has seen this and what the case could be and how to fix it. Thanks.
