Outlook 2007 Freezing
Posted on 2009-02-09
Alright I am waiving my white flag here. My ego is damaged and I need some help here trying to figure this out.
Outlook on my Dell Precision 670 is freezing about every couple minutes. Whether I am composing a message, entering Calendar information or reading emails, it will freeze for about 20-40 seconds and if I click on it, it gives me the old Not Responding. Running XP Pro Service Pack 3 and Outlook 2007 on an hosted exchange account
Tried different nic Card updated drivers
Renamed .ost and rebuilt mailbox
Changed ISP account (Comcast home to biz)
Rebuilt Mailbox on Laptop ( Works Fine on Laptop)
OS does not lock up, meaning local applications are available when Outlook is frozen (Including other MS Office programs)
Do not have an issue with Internet, streaming video, music.
At this point I have narrowed it down to something on the machine however what that is (well if I knew I wouldnt be writing this) I dont know. I am leaning towards a hardware issue however, I have never heard of a hardware issue that would cause only Outlook to fail. The first thing I did was install Outlook after I reformatted, and since I have added on programs it has continued to act the same way.
Thanks in advance for your expert advice.
