    Loading Outlook Program

    When clicking on the outlook program, the program takes 25-30 seconds to load. Is there a way that I can get the program to load faster?

    Your assistance in this regard will be most appreciated

    How big is the PST file?

    What addons do you have installed?

    What are some hardware details about the PC?

    Is this immediately after booting the system or after using the system for a bit?

    Have you checked with Task Manager to see what else might be using the system at that time?

    One disadvantage of Celeron systems is that they do not do disk access operations as quickly as other Intel CPUs.

    I just tried mine and it opened completely in 9 seconds. My last backup is 727,401KB.
    This is with Win7 32
    Why aren't you using SP3?
    Your Outlook should be SP2
    Thanks John
