I have outlook 2007 with windows XP with the lastest service packs. I tried GEOFF's fix from back in April 2007 but when I go to the Outlook12 folder and right click on Outlook.exe I do not get the option to run as Administrator, I think I am always logged in as the Administrator but I am not sure. I did go to the Outlook \tools\trust center\addins but I don't see a box to uncheck. Very flustrated, can you help me out with this? Outlook seems to be OK after it is open, it just taks forever to OPEN.
