Outlook 2003 stops receiving email after a few hours. It will still send but I have to close and reopen to 'fix' it.

XP Media Edition OS.

How do I fix?

Additionally occasionally Outlook seems to take over and I cannot use the internet until I reboot the computer. With this issue just closing Outlook does not help. Intermittent issue.

How do I fix?

Hard to tell because it does not do it every time. Yesterday it worked fine all day - today when I start Outlook it is taking over the computer so to speak. Internet wont work, is deadly slow so pages will not load and every time I look it is synchronizing. Ususally I have to reboot the laptop several times for it to stop doing it.

No idea why this is happening???

No, not really. If mcafee is scanning email, it could be causing the problems -if outlook works ok in safe mode, then mcafee or another addin is likely the cause.

Restart the computer in windows clean boot and check with the emails.

Refer the link to configure Windows XP to start in a " clean boot" state:-

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310353

Note: clean boot will disable the third party applications so after the clean boot is done make sure you enable the third party applications back on the computer.
