I was running WinME and had installed OfficeXP about 2weeks ago and it ran fine. I upgraded to WinXP pro about a week ago and that has been painless for the most part. The last few days however Outlook has been acting up. It just opens really slow. I get to "select a profile" (we have 2) and select either profile and from that point it takes anywhere from 1min-2min to open to a functional state. I don't have very much data in outlook at this point so I don't know what could be bogging it down. I'm running a Durron 900 with 448MB RAM. An uninstall/reinstall would not be the worst thing. I just don't want to have to go through all the setup again. Thanks for any help.

Part of Office Xp, it would be Outlook as opposed to Outlook Express and the version would be 2002 (10.2627.2625). I will check out the links tough, thanks.

I am running Outlook Express and have a problem with it opening slowly . Try reloading The file Imagehlp.dll from your installation CD . This was successful for me .

Hiya

There is a repair built into Office 2002.

Start any Office Program, and then go to Help | Detect and Repair. You may be prompted for your Office CD-ROM.

Also, do a search in Find Files and Folders for *.pst
Are any of them approaching 2GB? That is the largest size that Outlook will allow.

Regards
