Outlook 2007 not closing properly

#1

when i open outlook 2007 and check my mail all is ok, but when i go to close outlook 50% of the time an icon in the system tray is there with a cross thru it and when i open task manager to terminate outlook there is also a file called OSE.EXE always there as well, the ose.exe is the problem i think as this is the .exe i have to terminate in order for outlook to close 100% . any thoughts on what is causing this ? its been happening for 6months+ now, ose.exe is the problem i believe. any fixes for this ?

WinXP Sp3

thanks .

what do u mean what package office 2007 ?

my windows updates are all up to date as well.

the only thing i use is outlook 2007 for my email only.
i dont use word or excell or any of those other types of programs.

the ose.exe only comes up once outlook is opened. usually it goes away once i close outlook, but the past 6month + it stays there in task manager and seems to chew up cpu bigtime untill i terminate it, i think it started when i did an automatic update from windows.
