Windows 7: Outlook 2003 not responding

28 Jul 2011   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
Outlook 2003 not responding

Hi everyone.

I am hoping that someone can help me. Yesterday my Outlook 2003 stopped functioning properly. I can open this program and use all functions on the menu bar but the second I touch an email it hangs. It even downloads new emails without problems.

I used the installation disk to see if I could do a repair but my system hangs when trying to do a repair or re-install. I used the control panel and removed the complete office package and reinstalled but it stills hangs when I try accessing my emails.

I have to restart my computer in order to get Outlook to close. All other office programs seem to work with no problems.

Both Windows 7 and Office have all updates installed.

Please help
