Question about Microsoft Office Professional 2007 Full Version for PC
Hi there, since I upgraded to Outlook 2007 it does not close fast and sometimes I force the shutdown of the machine causing the outlook to crash and then have to be repaired. Is there any way around this? Can I close the outlook faster or make the repair process a bit faster?
It is very annoying waiting half an hour for it to close and then 1 hour to open(after I force close it).
Please help this thing is driving me crazy!
In XP here: 'C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MSMAPI\1033'
In Vista here: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12
Close Outlook and run SCANPST.EXE
Open Outlook (you may have to wait for it to sync folder)
click on Tools \ Options
click on the Other tab and click the AutoArchive button.
Set archiving for your personal folder, the shorter the time, the better outlook will run. (I used 8 weeks, as I have outlook 2003 on XP with no issues, all mail is there if needed later)
click the button "Apply these settings to all folders now"
Shutdown Outlook 2007
Now Compact the PST File
Control Panel > Mail > Click Data Files. Then double-click “Personal Folders” and choose “Compact now”
When done, Restart machine and open Outlook 2007.
Worked wonders for me on Vista w/ 1gb ram

Your computer might be using caching. Can you tell me how much RAM you have on your computer? If you have 2GB of RAM i would recommend disabling the caching. This slows down the system quiet a bit (since it uses miliseconds instead of nanoseconds). Your computer is as fast as the slowest component. I would also suggest defragging the drive.
