Have you ensured you've installed all Windows Updates? Also have you ran a repair on the Office Install? Could be the pst causing the performance issues, maybe try create another pst and move some emails to it, also ensure outlook doesn't have cached exchange mode on as this is a potential cause of performance issues.

Check your outlook plug-ins as well. They are loaded at startup aND can cause slowdowns
