Vista & Outlook 2003 Profiles Problem/Issue

I have set up three separate profiles using OL 2003 on a Vista Business OS.
When I first setup everything worked perfectly. When I would click to open
OL 2003 the Profile list would pop up so I could choose my correct email
source. Recently it has become sporadic in showing the profile list upon
start up and it know goes directly into one of the email accounts. However
all of a sudden the profile list will show up again and work and then go back
to directly accessing one profile directly on startup (it always accesses the
same profile) without prompting to see which profile I require. Before you
ask yes I have quadruple checked that the prompt for profile box is checked.
Any words of wisdom would be appreciated.

Outlook is not exiting completely. Here are the common reasons why:
1. PDA synchronization software with your PDA in the cradle.
2. COM Add-ins.
3. Mail reminder add-ins that keep a stub of Outlook open in the background
to check for new mail and fire reminders.
4. Anti-virus/firewall programs that are set to scan incoming and outgoing
mail.
5. Windows Search has not finished indexing your data file.

Russ,

You nailed it on the head. It was a PDA device. Thank you so much for the
help!!
