Outlook 10 loading forever in Windows 10

Q: Outlook 10 loading forever in Windows 10

I just recently upgraded my computer to Windows 10 but I noticed my Outlook 2010 emails have been a bit slower and then today it says loading profile when I try to open it but my emails won't open. This is not the first time that it has happened. Anyone know what it could be? I'm thinking there is something running in the background that is preventing it from opening it up.

Preferred Solution: Outlook 10 loading forever in Windows 10

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi there,

I have 2 email accounts that I check mail through Outlook Web Access 2003 on my home computer running Vista. Up until earlier this week I had no problem doing this. Now everytime I try to logon the pane on the left with all my folders is displayed, but the pane that normally shows my email just says "loading...."

Any suggestions? Anyone else having this difficulty?

Please note, I am typing on a DIFFERENT computer (IP address) than my other PC that has the problem - specifically a Windows 10 "Forever Loading" Problem, I believe. It is a 3 year old DELL, with Windows 10, so I cannot run the above suggested SysInfo Utility.

That said, I had an automatic regular Windows 10 update, which took forever and ever. While it seemed to be finishing; my DELL logo appeared, then I get my welcome screen and it allows me to very S-L-O-W-L-Y type my password; then my center screen wallpaper appears, but never any of my desktop icons. After much passed time, my task bar appears but no icons on it. The time appears in right hand corner of task bar, but the real time never advances. Lastly the dreaded spinning blue circle remains in the blank Task Bar. I have tried unplugging overnight, restarting, and the same thing. The Windows start button appears on task bar, but nothing works, because nothing has loaded on task bar or on my desktop. I have left it on overnight in hopes of a wishful escape of this endless loop it is stuck in.

Checking online, I have tried various suggested processes (getting to Task Manager, trying to restart explorer.exe, running new task (msconfig), tried to get to Safe boot to reboot, but cannot do any of those things due to the dreaded spinning blue circle. I simply can't get anywhere except to Task Manager, but nothing actually works within there either. Help Please?

Hi. I have an old Compaq laptop (says Presario A900 on it) running on Vista. A while ago, it froze, so I had to press the power button until it turned off. Now, when I turn it on it starts up normally with the black screen and the 30 secondseconds to start Windows regularly. I can log in fine, but if I click on Chrome and search something, it freezes. Sometimes I don't even get that far. I click on the Start button and the blue loading circle comes up. It doesn't do anything after that. The circle keeps going like something's loading. Occasionally it will freeze and I have to manually restart it. What's going on? Thanks.

I have windows 98 with ie6 and firefox 2 installed. My problem is that oftentimes it takes 2-3 minutes to switch from one open window to another or to open a new web page. My computer whirs and clicks forever and while it is doing this I can't do anything else ecept press alt-ctl-del to end the process and even that takes a long time to accomplish.
At first I thought it was a problem with ie6 so I installed firefox. Firefox worked fine the first few days but then it began behaving like ie6 taking forever to navigate between open windows. I tried disconnecting from the internet by turning off my dsl modem but the 'puter just kept whirring and clicking.

So i got this Dell Laptop to fix...weird thing is

it will be stuck on the load-up screen for 15-20 minutes or more, then logging in will take another 10-15 minutes...

I tried looking into the system configuration through msconfig

disabled most of the startup programs down to the two most important ones
also played around with the "system services", but no luck...both will still startup the laptop really slow...

it has a 1gb ram and all updates/drivers are installed...

i also tried swapping the hdd with another laptop, still the same thing. I do not suspect it to be a bad hdd

but even after swapping the hdd, it will still take a very long time to load up and login....

occasionally the explorer.exe will shoot up to 50% CPU usage without me doing anything...

i believe these two are related in some way...

any ideas...thanks in advance

So i'm having an issue where my cover photo and profile picture won't change on my laptop (aka lockscreen). The pictures currently on my lockscreen were my old cover photo and profile picture on facebook, and have since changed on facebook. I uninstalled and then re-installed facebook. I made sure profile sync was turned off and everything. Now, I changed my profile picture for microsoft, and that worked, except on the lockscreen page it is the same old facebook picture.
With the lockscreen wallpaper, it will not let me change it at all. In the personalization settings, it will let me browse for a picture, but will not load the preview.
I have tried everything. I've spent two days on the forums trying to figure this out. I have done the sfc /scannow several times. I have checked for virus. I checked to see if the new update messed with it, and I couldn't find the exact update everyone else was referring to; it didn't exist on my computer. The only thing that worked at all was when I did the registry editor, and disabled the lockscreen altogether. (computer>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE>POLICIES>MICROSOFT>WINDOWS) I didn't have a personalization file, so I made one and added the NoLockScreen option and set the hexadecimal value to 1 to turn the lockscreen off.

Now the issue, I would like to have a lockscreen. I do not care is it is my facebook profile and cover picture at all, I am just getting very aggravated by the constant picture that I have to see every ti... Read more

Could I possibly be infected? I am having problems with accessing any and all webpages. At first, I thought it was just a Mozilla issue, but the same problems occur in Google Chrome and IE. I will type in a URL and press enter and sometimes it will take forever to load, and if I click on the link again, it will bring it up instantly. It seems as if it is stalling.

IE, Opera, FF Chrome, all have problems loading the same websites while other sites load right away.

Just for an example... racerxonline.com will not load on any browser, but only on one of my windows 7 pc. My second win7 and linux pc work fine using the same router and all three computers are hard wired to the router as I don't have or use WIFI.

Here are the steps I have taken to resolve the issue with no success over the last couple of days:

1 Deleted and reinstalled all browsers with no add ons.
2 ipconfig /release..... ipconfig /renew
3 I use ccleaner all the time
4 swapped ethernet cables with the two other computers
5 swapped ethernet ports on router that other two computers work fine with
6 checked all start up programs in start up folder and all basic nothing new or odd

This happens in Chrome and Firefox. It started about a week ago apparently when some script froze and I forced it to stop running. It's really annoying since it usually stops comments loading and videos too sometimes. I did try wiping everything and reinstalling FF if you're wondering.

In Outlook 2002, a feature is added that notifies users that the connection to the Microsoft Exchange computer is taking longer than expected because of network congestion or server availability. This connection can include connections to the user's mailbox, a free and busy server, or any other server that Outlook may need to communicate with to fulfill a request for information. When such a delay occurs, the following Cancel Request dialog
box is displayed:

Outlook is retrieving data from the Microsoft Exchange Server server_name. You can cancel the request or minimize this message to the Windows taskbar until Outlook closes the message automatically.

Users in my office get this quite often... I understand why it happens, and changing the behavior on the desktop so the dialog box either isn't displayed doesn't FIX the problem, just hides it from view. What I dont know though is WHY this is happening on my network? What could be the cause of this? Is it a bandwidth issue, server related problem, if someone can offer some suggestions I would appreciate it. Some times this message appears and stays there indefinitely,
users get very agitated when they can't do something as simple as opening an email, or deleting a contact. Please help me figure this out! Thanks.

Hello. Hope someone here can help me out. A few months ago I got a new motherboard installed because my old one fried itself and the pc was reformatted and windows was reinstalled. Since then, it was working fine. The start-up time had also lowered considerably and it was working perfectly for once.

This problem started a couple of days ago. One thing that's been happening for a while, my computer started taking longer to start-up. I figured it was just all the programs etc I have installed. Then, I have this one external drive that I got connected internally. There were times where it wouldn't recognize this drive; it wouldn't show up on My Computer. Otherwise, it was perfectly fine.

Now two days ago this started happening:
If I didn't skip the disk checking blue screen it would start checking a disk and get stuck there.
Secondly, the screen where it says windows is starting up.. it started taking really long for the profiles to show.
Then once I would log in, it would take extremely long for windows to completely load. There'd be a weird blue long where my quicklaunch bar is and no programs would open unless opened directly through ctlr.alt.dlt--> file --> new task (that's how i'm accessing firefox right now)

A:Hard-drives not loading. PC extremely slow. Windows not loading properly. HELP!

Hello,

Sounds like a bad hard disk, remove the second disk you installed, and try it out. Does it behave better?

If so, you should reinstall the drive and either:

1. Boot and run 'chkdsk' on the drive. Open a command prompt and type 'chkdsk E:\ /r', assuming the second drive mounts as "E:\", verify this before you run this command, and change as appropriate. Keep in mind that on a particularily large and errored disk this can take hours or,

2. Run the diagnostics that the manufacturer offers on it's web site and test the drive (do a long verify test...not a short one). Fix any errors you encounter. It's best if you get a bootable floppy (or like) version rather than a tool that you install in your windows.

(also a very long test, 500GB SATA2 Seagate's with the 'Seatools for DOS' for example take nearly 4 hours!)

Using chkdsk is very good at keeping your data intact, using Seatools is not, and could corrupt filesystem data (FAT, NTFS, etc.) when you affect a repair, however it is important to fix any errors you encounter to ensure good performance and life of the drive.

If the drive won't repair or BSOD's (crashes) during these operations I would try to backup any data from this drive in your normal setup and then get rid of the drive.

Post back any results from the steps you followed.

Good luck.

Question, how long did you have Windows 10 before you went back and what apps talking about i assume third party apps, did you check with the manufacturer of those apps for updates ? I think until next July might be the cutoff for upgrades.

Houston, I have a problem. It started yesterday when attempting to log on to a user account, McAffee states that it detected a virus and recommends a scan. I click 'ok' once or twice and the following message appears: application failed to initialize (0xc0000005).

After reading through some of your posted solutions, I had to C-A-D to get task manager up so I could run Microsoft Anti-Spyware. It detected one and I removed it. I then started a McAffee scan and it found another one (maybe more, but I fell asleep waiting for it to finish). When I logged back in, McAffee was saying the same thing, I C-A-D and a c:\ window appears saying c:\WINDOWS\temp\setup.exe

It has been like this for 45+ minutes. I can attempt to shut it down, and it asks if you're sure (which I am not) so I cancelled out to let it run. The cursor inside the c:\ box appears to be moving around every 30 to 90 seconds. . . leading me to believe that it is doing something.

When I fire McAffee backup, I cannot find the one file it found before I fell asleep (not in quarentine anyway).

Any recommendations?

I should be more descriptive. Last week I had to install NAV's FixABWiz because the laptop was sending out 100's of emails. Now I believe I have AlfaCleaner issue, teslaplus.com issue and updating windows with security update KB905915 failed. Using windows restore failed as well. Along with the fail to initialize as stated in the topic. Any and all help would be appreciated.

A:windows xp shutdown problem, hanging at windows is shutting like forever pls help

Uninstall anything on your system related to I0bit, read Here why you should.

Next,

Delete any versions of Combofix that you may have on your Desktop, download a fresh copy from either of the following links :-

Link 1
Link 2
Ensure that Combofix is saved directly to the Desktop <--- Very important

Before saving Combofix to the Desktop re-name to Gotcha.exe as below:


Disable all security programs as they will have a negative effect on Combofix, instructions available Here if required. Be aware the list may not have all programs listed, if you need more help please ask.

Close any open browsers and any other programs you might have running

Double click the icon to run the tool (Vista or Windows 7 users right click and select "Run as Administrator)

Instructions for running Combofix available Here if required.

If you are using windows XP It might display a pop up saying that "Recovery console is not installed, do you want to install?" Please select yes & let it download the files it needs to do this. Once the recovery console is installed Combofix will then offer to scan for malware. Select continue or yes.

When finished, it will produce a report for you. Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" for further review

****Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall or freeze ****

HP Pavilion all in one, recently upgraded to windows 10, don't get me wrong, it was a turd before the upgrade but now it takes forever to load even simple web pages. The little blue circle just goes round and round...same thing with opening any program from the desktop, in frustration if you click the icon three or four times, after it gets going you have three or four windows open...

I'm willing to follow directions.

Thanks for the advice in advance !

I recently got a laptop with Windows 8 64 bit and it takes forever to bring up install prompts. I've been trying to install utorrent for the past 30 minutes and still no install prompt after I've clicked on the .exe to bring it up. What are possible solutions to this?

Windows 7 didn't have this problem. Why does Windows 8?

A:Windows 8 Takes forever!

Are you sure there isn't another installer running already without your knowing? Open up Task Manager (press Ctrl+Alt+Del and choose the last option) and in the process list search for msiexec.exe. Windows normally prevents simultaneous installers to avoid issues with corrupt files, drivers etc.

What other installations have you tried aside from utorrent?

new HP notebook in Oct2015 with windows 10 pre-loaded. All ok until early 2016 but since then, about once per week, windows update just fails to complete. If I go to the security and settings screen I cannot move from the windows update icon and there is a line of blue dots flashing across screen. The laptop still works ok while this is happening although maybe slightly slower, the only problem is on shutdown sometimes I get a message that apps are still downloading and do I really want to shut down, if I don't say shutdown anyway it never does. The way I get out of this is to do a system restore, which usualy ends in a massage saying it has failed to do so, but then I can update windows 10 to latest version and it updates itself ok for a few days before starting the cycle again. I don't have high speed broadband but download speeds are ok. Anyone got any ideas? Thanks, daverd8

A:windows update goes on forever

Hello, Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum. Welcome onboard ! This is very unspecific problem can be caused by lots of things. I would suggest you first try to uninstall any security software (if 3rd party security software is present) like antivirus/firewalls/etcThen, please, run Windows Update Troubleshooter >> https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/instantanswers/512a5183-ffab-40c5-8a68-021e32467565/windows-upda... to check for and potentially fix any issues with Windows Update. Please, also note that what you describe might be OK under certain curcumstances - for example if your Internet connection is very slow or if something is interfering with Windows Update process - e.g. firewall network drivers/ AV software / etc.Windows 10 is a lot different when it comes to lots of things including Windows Update. It downloads updates automatically, installs automatically. There were several bigger updates for 10 since it was initially released in the first official RTM version. If your Internet speed is not that fast and if something else is interfering, this might be the issue. It is very difficult to troubleshoot such an issue remotely without details. More info >> http://www.howtogeek.com/223068/what-you-need-to-know-about-windows-update-on-windows-10/  ===================================Something bigger on Windos might have also gone corrupted. If nothing else helps, you may consider backing up your personal files and reinstall... Read more

Unable to run any Windows Update since a couple of months and each time I go to Windows Update it takes forever and no updates were found nor installed.

A:Windows 7 Update Taking Forever

Hi:
 
See this post - the process worked for me on 2 systems and for many other folks.
Basic principle: manual installation of the standalone versions of KB3020369 and (most importantly) KB3172605:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/631190/windows-update-stuck/#entry4118065
 
And these other threads:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/632115/windows-7-updates-stopped-working/
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/621990/windows-update-taking-forever/
 
(Sevenforums.com has many similar threads, all with roughly the same steps.)
 
If that process does not work or if you are getting specific error codes, then you may have another issue.
 
Let us know how it goes, so that we can all learn.
 
EDIT: On the other hand, if this is the same computer as the one HERE with a BSOD problem, then you may have other issues, for sure.
 
Cheers,
MM

I have windows 7 pro 32 bit (I don't have SP1 yet) My updates are set to automatic. My computer, on restart, was busy installing updates. The updates have taken more than 12 hours and is still not complete. How can I stop the update from trying to install if I can't fix the problem.

A:Windows 7 updates takes forever

Yeah, 12 hours isn't normal. I'm guessing it's on the shutdown style screen saying "installing updates x of x"? From my experience, I'm afraid the best method to stop it is either hold down the power button for eight seconds or yank the power cable out. I would also recommend you switch you updates to 'download but let me choose what to install'

Hello,

I have a freshly installed (NOT YET ACTIVATED, i want to try it before buying) Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64.
The first thing i noticed was, that there is a process "svchost" which takes 25% CPU load (That's 100% for the first core) and 1,4GB RAM. What can cause this?

The other problem i encountered was, that i can't install Windows Update, .Net Framework 4.0 or "WinFuture Update Packs". Generally, have the feeling that it's anything deeper in Windows.

Can anyone help me on that problem?

A:Windows Updates will run forever and svchost

Welcome to our forum styler2go.

Where did you get your copy of Windows 7 Ultimate?

Do you have the proper COA key to activate Windows 7?
