After upgrading from outlook 2003 standard edition, I noticed that it takes 10 secs to load outlook and click on an email. I have disabled the Addins in Tools/Trust Center and disabled Symantec Endpoint v10.1.MR4 for testing purposes, still the same results. What I find weird is this only occurs on bootup, Once I close and open outlook everything is find. Running outlook2007 on a Dell Latitude D630 4 GIG of memory Windows XP SP3 Any ideas

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Possible slowness issues when you upgraded from Office 2003 to Office 2007:
Office 2007 (Upgraded from Office 2003)
Several files are not properly converted during the upgrade
Search for and delete these files if they exist:
outcmd.dat, extend.dat, views.dat and frmcache.dat. Outlook will recreate these files as needed.
*.pst files = create a new pst file (Outlook 2007 format) and migrate your data into the new pst file, then delete the old.
*.ost files = Completely remove this file and let Outlook recreate.
Remove any un-needed Add-ins (Tools, Trust Center, Add-Ins, Select Comm Add-ins from the drop-down at the bottom of the window and hit GO)
Create a NEW profile and migrate data into it if you are using a pst.
