When closing my PC I get prompted to say that Outlook 2010 is still runnning and do I wish to force a shutdown on outlook.  When I say yes the next time I open Outlook it asks me if I want to go into safe mode.  I have tried saying yes and no to this question with varying results.  It doesn't always flag safemode on starting and it doesn't always flag force shurdown on closing the PC.

try bringing up task manager and look under the processes tab for all services named Outlook.exe and end task on all of them. you probably have multiple processes running. make sure those are all gone and re-open Outlook.

I've tried that but it still fails sometimes when the process isn't showing.  Also the safe mode isn't always prompted after a crash...

do you have archive folders opened on that client and are they big?

close that archive and retry. it could be the constant polling of that archive from the network resource it resides on, or if its local it could be taking up resources from outlook. see if that works for you. also check the link above.

Yes there is an archive that is a local copy, does it have to be closed?  My client constantly needs to access this archive even if there is 5 years worth of emails in there!
