I am running XP Prof SP3 and Office 2003
In Outlook mail, I am plagued with commands hanging with egg timer icon showing. If I leave it sometimes for up to 4-5 minutes it will complete, but on the next command it hangs again. Eventually if left for some time, it will start working ok, but soon the hanging starts again.
I have the same problem in contacts, so there seems to be some process going on in the background.
Help to resolve this please.
