Hi Diane This is the Outlook Desktop that has started to fire up a separate process every time you open an email or create a new item. I currently have 30 such processes active! It is driving me mad. And no, there are no steps to repro - this just started happening every time I launch the Desktop Client. Thanks for looking at this. Dave
Thanks, Diane I ran Office Diagnostics and nothing specific came up. But the problem suddenly went away again. Let's hope it stays that way.
As you say, I will run a repair to be on the safe aside.
Thanks as always - good for us Outlook users to know you are out there!
Did you restart Outlook or reboot? I have seen things magically disappear on a restart - sometimes it just goes away on its own, other times the product team sees problems in the data that gets sent back and can identify the cause, flipping it off remotely - the changes sync down but don't kick in until you restart the app.
Hi Diane .. I finally tracked down this problem to some corrupt DLLs and Registry Keys. Running SFC /scannow from the command prompt instituted repairs and for now things have settled back down again. I discovered the problem was wider than just Outlook. Active Office and Browser apps were not being pinned to the taskbar; so that if the programme shortcut was pinned to the taskbar I instinctively kept clicking that, launching a new programme instead of just changing the focus. Absolute nightmare!! Hope all is well with you and thanks for your help. Dave
