Do you have sign any new group, it will slow down the system.
Try to unsubscribed it.

If no help, repost with info on Outlook Express version and O/S version.  

Some other thoughts...

running out space on HD?
virus?
Need to reload OE?
Been to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com lately?
Added any hardware/software to your system or made modifications to your settings?

That's it for now.....
