I have just installed Microsoft Office 2003, and everything works fine except for Outlook. Whenever I start up the program it will load up, but immediatley stop responding, and I have no idea what could be causing it to do this. another problem I've been having, which is similar to this, is that my instant messaging programs (yahoo, AIM, msn) all crash after I have signed in. MSN messenger is slightly different however, in that it will only crash if the messenger window is open. If it is minimized in the system tray when i'm signing in then it won't crash, but if i restore the window then i've got about 10 seconds before msn freezes up. this problem started about just under a week ago. My OS is XP Pro SP2. If anyone has any idea what might be causing this, I would greatly appreciate their help. Thanks,
Mark

Hypnotoad, first of all you're not suppose to tag onto someone else's thread, you need to start your own ("Do not piggyback threads by posting your question as a reply to another question." Found in the rules: http://www.daniweb.com/techtalkforums/faq.php?faq=daniweb_faq#faq_rules).

Secondly, there is a notice at the top of this forum to post all HJT logs in the Security forum.

HJT also needs to be in it's own folder to safely save backups, like
C:\Documents and Settings\Happ\Desktop\HJT\HijackThis.exe
(instead of C:\Documents and Settings\Happ\Desktop\HijackThis.exe).
And, all browser windows should be closed before scanning with HJT (including Firefox).

After you've put HJT into a safe folder, close all browser windows, scan with HJT, and post a new log in the Security/Bugs forum, along with a description of any problems you are having.

Oops, another name change, the Security forum is now called Viruses, Spyware, and other Nasties, so post your log there.

simple, and easy... under aim preferences and the sign on/off section uncheck the "start aim when windows starts" AND "make aim my default messaging program". problem solved.
