Have you run a virus checker - http://security.symantec.com and http://www.bitdefender.com
Have you run a spyware scan - http://security.kolla.de and http://lavasoftusa.com
Maybe Start-Run-SFC /scannow

Yes I have a symantec 9.0 installed and running.   I'm not experiencing this issue in other applications such as MS Word, Excel, Powerpoint etc., only in Outlook 2003.  This issue is happening with one user.

Run a spyware scan from both of those locations.  I don't know of anything else to try.
