More Outlook 2003 Adjustments for Speed

  1. Disable Person Names Smart Tag
  2. Remove the many sites in Restricted Sites (IE settings) put there by SpywareBlaster or a similar utility, and adjust that zone to disable the new-in-IE7 phishing and pop-up filters. Outlook 2003 and IE7 don't have security controls that work well together. If everything else in Restricted Sites is disabled, the pop-up and phishing filters are irrelevant, and while browsing with IE7, the Internet Zone will be applied always because no sites are specified in Restricted Sites. Make sure Firefox is your default browser, anyway.
  3. Disable add-ins and extensions you don't use
  4. Quit Outlook and rename frmcache.dat in C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\FORMS to frmcache.old
