    Outlook 2003 hangs...

    I have Outlook 2003 which has been working just fine the entire time since I got it in June. I had it already in taskbar and loaded on my pc fine. Went to bed, came back to reply to an email and suddenly when I hit "reply" it hangs the entire software.

    I reboot the pc, restart Outlook and click reply again...same problem it hangs when "starting word as outlook editor..." message.

    What's the problem? I have no spyware and did not make any changes whatsoever to my system since last night or yesterday in as well. No installs, nothing.

    Specs:
    Winxp Pro
    Office 2003

    This is a generic answer, not specific to your problem, but have you tried Help > Detect & Repair?

    Must be a Microsoft Word problem, which may or may not be obvious.

    Try going into Options and using plain text as your new mail format, or try not installing Microsoft Word. That should help you troubleshoot anyway.

    Couple things -> Like mentiond above, disable the use of MS Word for -anything- inside of Outlook.. it's bull shhhhttttt...

    Secondly, make sure you auto archive your email. Mine was getting really slow the other day and I had my email auto archive and it seemed to help
