After the maching boots up outlook takes a long time to load and when it does email take a long time to open up, and print jobs also take a long time to print and sometimes it just refuses to print.

Your system might be infected by w32.klez virus. This virus slows down the computer. Please update the virus protection software and run a full scan of the hard drive. If it detects klez virus, here is link on how to fix it. http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.klez.removal.tool.html

If I were you, what I would do if I suspected a virus or strange activity.
Start the computer up, close all other programs, and look at the 2 computers on the bottom right corner indicating network connectivity (Internet). Does it blink for no reason? Close all other apps in the dock bar (the apps that are on near the clock).
Still blinking computers?
Do a CTRL+ALT and DELETE that is hold CTRL and ALT press DELETE key, do you see any strange program name listed there? If so just end task them.

Start outlook, set the settings to not to retrieve emails automatically *you know like preiodic email checkings* turn them off, just let it sit doing nothing, do you see blinking activity?

If you do, it could be a outlook virus, using youremail address as the source and sending people in your contact list emails attached with a virus.

Otherwise, check if you harddrive has DMA enabled, it is in the device manager in system properties in control panel. Cheers

I'd be inclined to point the finger at your printer(s).

When Windows boots, it tries to restore any connections it had when it was shutdown, including printers. If there's a problem with the printer, it will delay the opening of any apps, Outlookincluded.
Also, all office apps use the print drivers to format their display and output, causing further problems.

Try just deleting your printers altogether, reboot and see what happens. If the problem is resolved, try reinstalling your printers in a different way, i.e. direct IP printing/print queues/parralell cable/with a different version of the driver PCl or PS.

Hope this helps,
Gary

Check your system resources. Right click My Computer and then choose properties. Click the performance tab and check system resources. If there is less than 70% free that may be your problem. To free up resources click Start, run and type: msconfig.Click startup tab and click to clear the check in boxes of programs you rarely use and programs that use a lot of resources like MS Office Realplayer ect. Run Disk Cleanup by right clicking the C: drive in My Computer and choosing properties. Also run disk defragmenter and install more memory.
