    Recently, I have noticed that whenever I open Outlook 2007 it causes my hard drive to run incessantly. I removed some plug-ins I had installed (Gist and Tungle to be specific) and that did not resolve the issue. The other problem is slow response time - I can be in my inbox and attempt to switch to any other folder and it lags 3-4 seconds before the folder content pops up. System operating specs are below - I would love to get rid of this noise by means other than shutting outlook down (although that has its advantages!)
