Latest update slowed Outlook down

Not open for further replies.


I have W7 64 and Office standard 2007 upgrade

I received an update to windows yesterday and loaded as always, After the update outlook was so slow to open any folders. I have two pst files one for send and receive with no emails kept in it only received and then moved to the other pst file, which has only about 1 MG used.

So no large files and everything worked (NOT fantastic) up and till I updated. I even restored and everything worked as normal but then the update happened again and everything in outlook slowed down again. opening files takes a good ten to twenty seconds now.

The other problem is that I couldn't receive any emails using the four or five email addresses that I use. When I looked at the account settings the MS update had ticked the SPA box. After un ticking them I could receive email


This has happened to me too. Outlook has slowed dramatically! Just changing folders now takes about 20 - 30 seconds. Whereas before it took about 1 - 2 seconds. However your KB2412171 isn't installed on my system.

About 15 or so updates were updated on my system on 12/15/10 - it seemed like alot at the time and wondered why these updates hadn't come gradually instead of all at once.

I run Windows Vista 64 and Outlook 2007.

These automatic updates were installed on 12/15/10:



















Office 2007 SP2

Silverlight 4.0.51204.0

Should I just uninstall all of these updates? I don't have time to be waiting to just change folders! Sometimes I have been on the phone and needed access to an email but i have to wait 30 - 60 seconds for it to just change folders.... I have not changed any settings, ever. It has only been since this update.


Ok - I have now realized that the update KB2412171 is installed on my system - becuase it is listed under the "View Update History" - "Windows Update"

However, it is not listed in the "Installed Updates" under "Programs and Features" so therefore Ido not have the option of uninstalling it.

The "View Update History" lists MANY updates which don't appear in the "Installed Updates" section in Control Panel...

How can I uninstall this update when it is not listed as an uninstallable update?
