Processor usage peaking with outlook98

By badams ·
My machine as well as others in our deptment are having the processor uasge peaking constantly and stays at 100% for 10 minutes or so. I have 128 ram and a 333mhz IBM machine. I have been monitoring with sysmon and wintop and in wintop the MSGSVR.exe service is running at 65%+. This is with outlook98 open. I know this is the messaging service but why is my machine staying at 100%. Please help! This is really starting to become a problem. Thanks!

Try disabling FINDFAST. This is a known issue in Office. As for the message service I haven't experienced that before. Let me know if that fixes it though.

I did not elect to install findfast when I was installing Office 97. I knew that would cause problems later on if I did. But THANK YOU. If you hear anything else I would love to give you these points!!
