My computer continues to lock up, most often when replying to an e-mail using Outlook.
CPU usage goes to 100% winword.exe is taking 99%
CPU usage can remain at 100% with no programs running.
Computer must be re-booted to restore operation.

A little more info for you.

I ran Spybot and Adware, uninstalled and reinstalled Office SBE, installed SP1 and SP2 and I get the same problem.  

The problem only happens when responding to emails.  Not all emails, only certain ones.

Ok that may or may not work, but how do you do it using Outlook 2000 on an XP or 2000 pc?
