Outlook CPU Spiking to 100%

Using Office 2000 with all SP installed on an XP, and with only Outlook directly started from desktop ... it sits there idle for about 60 seconds and then freezes the system as CPU spikes at 100%.

I keep task manager on to kill the process.  It always happens.  I have removed it and reinstalled it.

I have read many postings about outlook cpu spiking and none of the sugegsted solutions fit my situation.

Hoping for a suggested fix.  Thank you.

This does not work.  Thank you though ... I uninstalled Office, reinstalled from CD ... installed the SR1, SR3, and 12/18 SR3 update.  The situation persists.

Any other thoughts?

Thank you.

Are you using a virus scanner like NAV or McAffee?  Their email scanning sometimes does that... try disabling them and see if u still get the spikes...

I beleive you are using MS exchange Server if so try uninstalling your tcp/ip protocol (easier the network card totally) and re install it
remember you will need to apply all the Service packs

if not using exchange server try office.microsoft.com and install all updates for MS office.
