Outlook 2000 99% CPU when creating new message
Posted on 2009-02-09
I have an outlook 2000 corporate workgroup installation on XP SP3 where when I open outlook it runs great, until I try and create a new message or open an existing message. Then outlook.exe spikes to 99% usage and locks up.
The PST files are not above the 2GB limit.
I have disabled word as the email editor, ran office update and updated windows and office 2000 to the latest patches. Also installed the Olk0901.exe update for outlook.
When I run outlook using the "/safe" option it works just fine.
