    Some more info,

    I have all removed 3rd party add-ins except Blueprint (allow greater control over appearance of printed material).

    I have also run the scanpst.exe routine on the Outlook.pst and Archive.pst files. Some errors were detected in both and repaired. Unfortunately this did not solve the problem
