    I put up a post here recently that nobody could solve concerning my Office Outlook 2007 Beta consuming huge amounts of memory - up to 150 Mbs! (n)
    When I first opened it up, it typically took about 5 Mbs and then using Task manager, I could sit and literally watch it over a period of hours, slowing chewing up memory for no apparant reason! :eek: :eek:
    Purely by accident, I minimized the apllication instead of leaving it as an open window and voila, memory back to normal instantly - and staying like that!(y)
    Maximize or restore it and off it goes on the memory chow hunt again!!:mad: :mad:
    I tried this with other applications like IE7, explorer etc. but no results like Outlook!
    I wonder why it does this? :confused:
    Pain in the neck having to minimize it all the time but certainly frees up the memory for me!:D :D

    Hi and welcome to TSG!

    Beta's are very rarley stable, and normally have many issuses, and this could be the main reasons for your problem.
    have you tried office 2003 or the final version of office 2007?
    You can download a free trial (as far as i know) from here http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/downloads/CD100602001033.aspx and give that a try.

    Hope that helps ;-)

    Kind Regards,
