Win XP Pro, 2G Ram, Dell Optiplex 755. Using Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security no threats found. Current Microsoft Updates installed.
The system is locking up, with an hour glass mouse, randomly it seams when sending or receiving email. The only way to recover is to power off and on.
I have been running the scanpst.exe tool to fix the PST files. I need to run it two or three times in a row in order to fix the files. After the errors are repaired, I can open Outlook and immediately close it, run the scanpst tool and more errors are reported.
This started to show up about two weeks ago. I have been looking for similar problems or fixes on the net, but no luck so far. May be some sort of mail-ware but I cannot tell.
