Outlook 2000 hangs when closing

Outlook 2000 hangs every time I close it. I have to go through the task manager and force the close every time. I've tried repairing and re-installing office. I've upgraded to sp3 and it still happens. I checked the event log and it comes up as event ID 1002.

Hi pimprich,

Now that you have close outlook , go to task manager and check if there is any outlook.exe running.
if yes , kill the process

then go to control panel > mail > show profiles and add a new profile
login to that profile and create and account.
now work on that profile and then close outlook. check if that same thing happens

Also donot have word as default email editor

I re-created the profile and isolated the problem to be the extra calender that the user had access to (which I forgot mention was 2003). Outlook 2000 has problems viewing 2003 exchange boxes. There is a patch for this on the microsoft website, but it's beta.
