WIN 7 Pro & Office 2007 Outlook loading inbox is slow (20 seconds?)

Found this online... no such KB installed!

Uninstalling KB2412171 on Windows 7 or Windows Vista
1.Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2.Click Programs, and then under Programs and Features, click View installed updates.
3.Click the entry for KB2412171, and then click Uninstall.

Other suggestions?

It would be normal to take 10 seconds to load all the add ins that Outlook has. My Outlook 2010 on Windows 7 takes up to 10 seconds to load.
>>> Actual Time To Load (TTL) = 2:30

1. Look at the add ins you have and see if any can be disabled.
>>> Only Roboform, Norton, Adobe PDF

2. Start Outlook in Safe Mode and see if it is faster.  
Here is a source about starting in safe mode. http://www.msoutlook.info/question/270
Windows Vista and Windows 7 there is a Search box in the Start Menu. Here type; outlook.exe /safe
>>> "Windows cannot find 'search:query=outlook.exe%2Fsafe'..."
>>> CTRL + shortcut - no safe mode.

3. How big is your inbox  and your mail file?  Overloaded inboxes take a long time to load.  
>>> Backed up .pst files, deleted Sent/Junk/Drafts - purged In (now only 35 files): TTL = 1:30

>>> Other PC (win 7 Pro/Office 2007) on home network: Outlook TTL=1:15 with In Box = 135

Backed up .pst files, emptied most Deleted Items (66 left), deleted most RSS Feeds, Deleted most sent Items (19 left) - Time to Load = 1:13 minutes:sec

Loaded in Safe Mode, TTL < 3 seconds. Why? What now?

All TTL with stopwatch.

Removed add-ins that seemed non-essential - Wow TTL < 3 sec!

Thanks.
