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.
