PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:WINDOWS XP SP2
Problem Application Name & Version:OUTLOOK 2003, MSN 6.2, IE6.1SP1
Problem Hardware Make & Model:NOTBOOK COMPAQ NX9010
Error Messages:
After I update my windows xp with SP2 I noticed that
when I try to maximize outlook window(already loaded), it hangs for at least 1/2minutes, then it will be maximized and work normally, even when I set it to work offline.
Same thing happened with MSN messanger 6.2, when i maximize the chatting window, i cannot write anything for at least 1/2 minute, and all what I trying to write is comming later as undelevered message. Then it works normally.
Same thing happened with IE6.1 SP1

I don't know if this related to SP2 upgrade or my note book have a virus.

can any one help?

Thanks in advance.

shark304:

That kind of thing could happen for many reasons I can think of.

However, let's try to eliminate a few as possibilities. The system running short on RAM could cause this sort of behaviour. Try running Task Manager and look at the Physical Memory Tab. How much is the Total and How much is the Available?  

Next, have you installed any other software or changed any other configuration settings lately? If not, I'd strongly suspect the Service Pack 2 update, since it is not really ready for prime time yet (not thoroughly tested as of yet.) If nothing else works, you can try uninstalling the Service Pack. You can usually find an uninstall option for that in Add/Remove Software if you click "Show Installed Updates".
