Outlook Problem. . .

Whenever I close Outlook, Outlook.exe remains as a running process.

If I open and close it 5 times, there will be 5 Outlook.exe running that I have to end.

What is up w/ this? How can I fix it?

I also noticed that I have 5 svchost.exe running. 3 under system, 1 under local service, 1 under network service. Are the 3 under system normal?




Woah.. I'm still here?

Still have the problem. . . any clues?


This is a fairly common issue that many people over the years have experienced since Outlook 97. It typically occurs when someone has an add-in or something tying into Outlook that doesn't release properly. Examples can be found in the KB articles below.

You can hunt for the offending software.. or if all else fails, try the handy-dandy Outlook Shutdown add-in found here:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
