Outlook 2010 always freezing

My Outlook 2010 client is always freezing! Why is it doing this? Is there a solution?

Hi Codyw, which Anti-virus are you using?

Some AV's, like for example Norton, can have a severe impact on the performance of Outlook.

Interesting article here that may give you some pointers, the main culprits seem to be the Adobe PDF add-in and handling large quantities of e-mail.

I used to use Norton and I now hate it! It infected my machine with 100+ pieces of spyware. I currently have Kaspersky PURE on my host machine and Trend Micro Titanium Internet Security on my virtual machine.

I will look at the attached article and see what I can come up with.

Cody,

If you close/exit all other programs, do you still have this problem?

As an experiment,
disable/exit from Kaspersky and TrendMicro.

Problem gone?

Hmm if it's the pdf problem remove Adobe reader and get Sumatra PDF

Not sure if I mentioned this or not - but this freezing of Outlook started after the spyware hit. The machine has been wiped a few times since then though...

I'm not suggesting to use no protection.

What will help is if you would temporarily disable Kaspersky and TrendMicro and see if then the freezing goes away.
