    My problem is that "find" is permenantly highlighted and when I try to
    "reply" to an email, outlook hangs when trying to open Word.
    I am running Office 2003 professional and have tried "fixing" with the disk.
    I am a bit leary about a full install because I have email saved in my
    folders that I definetly don't want to loose. I am not too sure about
    archiving and retrieval. I have never successfully retrieved email in the
    past. Anyway Outlook hangs when I try to reply to an email and I have to shut
    the program down through Task Manager.
    Does anyone have any ideas as to what caused this. I have done a restore
    point past when this started...three days ago when I knew it was working just
    fine. Thank you for investigating this query. Palamino

    Uninstalling Outlook has no impact on the data files, using Archive doesn't
    lose data, If you never managed to retrieve old data its because you are
    using the incorrect 'retrieval' processes
    Having said that uninstall / reinstall is unlikely to do anything
    How does Outlook perform if you start it using the safe switch?;
    Start>Run outlook.exe /safe (note space between exe /)
