outlook 2002 - 100% cpu usage
Posted on 2005-03-16
I'm running outlook 2002 on win 2000 pro with sp3. When I click send and receive outlook talke up 100% cpu. I get this info from task manager and also sysinternals software. When I watch the cpu usage it peaks for about 30 seconds during which task manager indicates that outlook is "not responding" . Then cup usage drops low for a second or two, returns to 100 % for another 15-20 seconds, drops low and repeats this for a third time. It finally drops, but no send and receive activity has taken place. But, outlook returns to being "running". I've run this software on this pc for about 18 months with no issues. Yesterday I installed several updates from the ms site. The problem persists today. It makes outlook unusable. Help!
