I have a Win2k with all Windows Update done, Office with all update done, Symantec Anti-virus active and all update done. For unknown reasons, I am getting once in a while a TCP/IP error: "TCP/IP error occured while trying to connect to the server. Account, ... Server,... Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure (SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800ccc15". I looked over Google and found some stuff as to check if a certain virus was there (which is not the case) and to run Ad-Aware 6 (with last update) for "I don't remember the reason". The most possible one I got was to reload my TCP/IP stack by ripping and reinstalling TCP/IP. I uninstall TCP/IP protocol from network control panel, reboot and reinstall TCP/IP protocol. The problem stays.
When I get the error, if I closed Outlook I can see my OUTLOOK.EXE still active in the Task Manager. By "End Process" the OUTLOOK.EXE, I can restart Outlook and it start working properly. I also tried to unstalled Outlook and reinstalling it, reinstall Outlook Update (Office update) and my problem's still there. Any ideas???
