Outlook Starting on its own.

By nyarl ·
Something has usurped outlook app in my Windows XP computer. It starts up randomly at peculiar times. Sometimes with other apps running, sometimes with nothing else running. It is not in Startup. It may wait a day to pop up but once up it will usually restart within 10-15 minutes of shutting it down. I am ready to uninstall it just to stop it. I've seen many similar problems in other forums with no substantial answers.

If it is not in your startup, you should also check your scheduled tasks folder and see if it is there.

However, if it is starting up randomly, it maybe that you have been infected by something.

You need to do a full anti-virus and Spyware scan.

Let us know how you get on

Good luck

This post was way back in 2006, but I am now seeing the same behavior on my machine running XP SP2 and Outlook 03.

Did you ever discover the culprit in your case?
