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.

No thoughts on this?

Wonder if somebody could move this post to the "Startup Programs" forum? Might be applicable and get some feedback. Just a suggestion. I'd love to figure this out. Thanks.
