I have had Office and Outlook 2007 for over a year. Once before it acted strangely and I did something that fixed it and I usually document all fixes but I didn't and its acting up again. Seems that it was something simple/stupid.
Here is what is going on:
> hard to drag/drop mail item to a folder; opens it instead of moving but sometimes it works
> highlight message to delete or move and it opens it (single click acting like double click)
> highlighting text is almost impossible. Won't let me start and stop where I want to and even when I can the highlight disappears sometimes when I release mouse
> using scroll bar on right side is like pulling teeth
> when I click on mail folder to see subfolders it closes before I can even look/select or it opens and when I release mouse it closes. Same thing when I try to use any drop down menu but after several tries the drop downs/folder stay open
Some of these things happen in WORD 2007 also AND on my browser (I.E. and Firefox) so I did what I thought was appropriate to diagnose...
I run Win XP and Office 2007 and am the only user of this PC. Ran Windows diagnostics as there is no detect and repair in Outlook 2007. Ran Windows/Office Update. The last software that updated was Adobe Flash so I removed all Flash programs but still acting up. And Yes I rebooted after each 'action' to fix.
This is driving me to distraction. Hope someone can help.
