Outlook 2002 (officeXP) is opening attachments extremely slow!

Last Modified: 2010-04-08
I have a W2K Pro PC with Outlook 2002 that is opening attachments extremely slow. ( 30 - 60 secs)  I have installed Office SP3, the Alternate User Update, run virus scan.  I have also selected open file and unchecked "always ask when opening attachment"  I believe that is the statement or close too it.  I have also tried to uninstall NAV and try to open attachments and it still was very slow.  I can forward an e-mail with attachments to another account and open these attachments just fine.  The size of these files doesn't seem to matter.  I have try to open 260k excel sheets or just a 20k word doc and both seem to open slowly.  I do believe the smaller files open up somewhat quicker but I can open them very quickly on other pc's.  Any help would be appreciated.  Also, outlook is connecting to a exchange 5.5 running on nt 4 server.
