I'm stumped. Dazed and confused. I've run 'detect and repair', uninstalled and  reinstalled Office XP, removed Hotbar, etc., but the 'Find' feature in Outlook still hangs and returns nothing. The last thing i tried was to install Office Proffesional 2003. I think it's some kind of registry problem, but the only fix on Microsoft's website is for Outlook 2000.

I don't have the option of using 3rd party software, as this is occuring in a work environment, and that would involve approval from my lead, among others. It's strange, because the find feature used to work just fine.
