I recently noticed that when I close Outlook, that the next time I open it, it doesn’t prompt me for my password (my personal folders are password protected). Come to find out that when I shutdown Outlook, it isn’t actually closing and removing itself from memory. When I open the Task Manager after shutting down Outlook, OUTLOOK.EXE remains active and taking up a large amount of memory – typically 90+MB.
Does anyone else have this problem? I found the post below in a forum, however there wasn’t an answer associated with it. Are we stuck with a version of Outlook that will not close? Does this have anything to do with the fact that my Address Book is unavailable as well – See Post: Microsoft Outlook – Address List Cannot Be Displayed.
I have recently installed Vista Ultimate (32 bit) and Office 2007.
I have discovered a problem with Outlook 2007 in that it does not always close down on exiting the program. When this happens, the next time you try to start Outlook nothing happens, when I go into task manager I see outlook.exe running 2, 3 or more times. When I kill these in task manager Outlook will then load.
It seems like something is keeping Outlook active after I exit the program but I am unable to find out what it is.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
