Getting a couple of application/memory errors when closing Outlook 2003

Minor problem, since it's only affecting my computer, but annoying because I have to babysit my shutdown. ;-)

When Outlook closes, it gives two memory errors, which are worded identically, but one's for Outlook.exe, and one's for WinWord.exe:
The instruction at "0x37001328" referenced the memory at "0x7c801d77".  The memory could not be "written".  Click OK to terminate the program.

I know my computer's about due to a format and rebuild, XP's starting to get bogged down in itself. ;-)  Is this just another symptom of that, or of something else entirely?

Thanks,

Greetings, edensandavant !

Besides Outlook not closing properly, its connection to MS Word is not either.  If you disable MS Word as editor, you will not get the WinWord.exe error.

You may have a program interfering with closing of Outlook

If no joy, an addin may be interfering. Disable Outlook Addins.  Go to Tools > Options > Other > Advanced Options > Addin Manager or COMM/Addins and disable the addins.

If no joy, you may need to reinstall Outlook.

Sorry, was testing some other things, didn't realize the acceptance was on a short leash now.

Disabling the COM add-ins worked for the Outlook/Word crashing.  Thanks!
