I recently got rid of some malware thanks here to Bleepingcomupter.com Things seem to be running fairly well. Except whenever I have Outlook open, something is spiking up my CPU usage in task manager and I am getting the "hourglass" blink right next to my cursor about every 6 seconds. It's like there is something running. Causes my machine to kind of hang sometimes or just move slower. Periodically I'll hear it really grinding a little while. I have noticed I have almost 60 processes running, most of the .exe files. For some reason I am wondering if the "Search Desktop" feature or the indexing??
I'm running XP SP3, using IE or Firefox. Outlook 2003
thanks for any help.
