A few things you can try.
1. Disable Add-Ons in IE.
(Tools --> Manage Add-ons).
2. If you are using Word for email editor, try to
disable that. (Tools -> Options --> Mail
3. Start Outlook in safe mode, see if you
experience the same problem. (Start --> Run --> "outlook
/ safe", or hold down the Ctrl key while you start Outlook).
If the safe mode solves the problem, while you are in
safe mode, go to"Help", "About", and click on "Disabled Items", and hopefully
that will help you to narrow down the suspects.
If all these don't work, you can try to run
"Hijackthis" from Trend Micro, while you have IE and Outlook
running. You should be able find some resources online to help you
deciphering the log.
This is not
structural,however, I have a weird computer problem that eludes
During a recent
webcast I found that I kept losing internet connectivity. I blamed the
webcaster and then Norton but that was not the case.
1) When I am
in Outlook my CPU usage climbs to 65%+. It often peaks to 100% at which
time it gags. Problem only exists when using Outlook and/or
2) When I go
online, browsing etc it climbs to 30%+ but often not high at
FTP/data/download transfers not significantly high unless I move about the
slows my keystrokes and everything so I can't keep the email on. Even as I
type now the usage is at 70% ...
have insight into what is happening in Outlook and/or IExplorer to cause
this? I blamed Norton because I don't have this problem on other machines
I have that don't have Norton but I uninstalled Norton and the symptom
I am thinking of
doing a re-build ... but I don't have the time at the moment for
