Running outlook 2000 on a core duo 6600 processor - when outlook is open the processor is working at 40-50% constantly- why so much? When I initially start it the processor usage is almost 0%, then about 1 minute later it goes to 40-50% and stays there, could it be caught in a loop?

I tried disabling the antivirus and firewall and no difference. I ran the detect and repair utility under the help menu. I checked process on task manager and outlook.exe is the only one using the processor. This is a new install, so I should not have corrupted files . the only thing I copied over thru the import/export feature was the contacts. Loaded updates up to rev 3 for office and all security updates.

Is there a setting in outlook that can address this, what is outlook doing to require so much processor?

thx much

Ignore this post, today I left Outlook on for a couple of hours, and now it is back to normal - no idea why - maybe something funky windows was doing to it - possibly updating something??????????? Either way it took a couple of days for this to "fix" itself.
