The outlook process won't close, and then later I can't re-open outlook. Based on googling around I found http://www.slipstick.com/problems/close.asp this article which made me think clamwin attaching to outlook 2000 is the cause. Anyone know if it really is the problem?

Hi there,

I'm not having any problems myself, but off course any plugin would be suspicious, including the OlAddin of clamwin.

Is this problem generically reproduceable ? If so you might consider doing some tests (disabling email scanning in clamwin preferences and restarting/closing outlook, or even uninstall clamwin and try again). If you're familiar with manual alterations of the registry you can disable the loading of the plugin there.

Off course if it is just an occasional problem these tests will prove nothing.

I disabled it as you said, but it still didn't close.

I will be uninstall clamwin, and reinstalling without the outlook plugin.

Update: removing clamwin didn't fix it, so it's probably just a generic problem with outlook 2000. I guess I'll have to install one of those outlook shutdown addins.

Or if google gmail ever supports html signatures without greasemonkey hacks, I can leave it forever.

Ok, thanks for the tests and results.
This seems to clear the ClamWin plugin.
