I have XP Media Edition on a Gateway laptop. I am using OUtlook 2003. My AVG is up to date and scans clean. I leave my computer on all the time. Up until the last few days, perhaps once a week, I would get the following error message when I tried to open Outlook:

Unable to open your default e-mail folders. The file C:\Doucments and Settings\Owner.YOUR-E1F58D5B90\Local SEttings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.pst is in use and could not be accessed. Close any application that is using this file and then try again.

Nothing is running in task manager and I see no process that readily appears to be related to this folder/file. Once I reboot, all is fine--I can open OUtlook with no problem. But not until I reboot.

In the last few days, I have been getting this message much more frequently.

I have looked this up on the Internet and can't find this exact problem.
