I am having issues with painfully slow Outlook 2003. Our outlook is running at a snails pace when flipping between e-mails, calendar and tasks.
My problem is on two Gateway machines with nearly identical set ups at home. We access one e-mail account on both machines and two other accounts on one machine each. Interestingly one of our daughters has a third profile on one machine and it works just fine. Outlook worked for all of us fine until two weeks ago. I think I have narrowed it down to the Windows updates as the cause of the problem. When I restore to a time point before May 10 everything works fine until the windows updates install. After that we go back to incredibly slow performance opening mail, closing mail, switching to calendar etc.
Gateway PC running XP
McAfee Security Center, auto updates loaded May 8
Windows XP, auto updates enabled and just got these updates May 10
Update for Outlook 2003 Junk Email Filter (KB934708)
Security Update for Office 2003 (KB934180)
Security Update for CAPICOM (KB931906)
Security Update for Word 2003 (KB934181)
Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP (KB931768)
Security Update for Excel 2003 (KB933666)
Update for Windows XP (KB930916)
Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - May 2007 (KB890830)
Update for PowerPoint 2003 (KB933669)
If I disable them one at a time nothing changes. If I restore to a point before May 10 nothing everything is fine until the updates download.
I have tried detect and repair with now help.
I am no PC expert and am at the end of my knowledge. Any ideas?
