Microsoft makes available Outlook 2007 Pre-SP2 Performance update

Microsoft has released (in February of this year) a cumulative update for Office that is a pre-release of fixes due in Service Pack 2. I have been running this for a few weeks now and the biggest changes in this update are these:

Outlook Improvements

  • Improved responsiveness (reduced I/O disk usage and improved UI response time)
  • Decreased Outlook startup time
  • GREATLY improved exit/shutdown time (this one is HUGE since it resolves the issue with Outlook not really shutting down when you ask it to).
  • Improved performance for folder and view changes
  • General reliability of calendar updates especially in delegate manager scenarios

General Improvements

  • Reduced Data File Checks (this is noticed when you see the message "The data file <file name> was not closed properly…")
  • Improved search reliability
  • Fewer duplicate RSS items
  • General security improvements

A full list of improvements and fixes included in this update are available at:

The update is available on request from this site:

Can anyone recommend the top Network Management utility for a small IT service company like mine? Does anyone use or How do they compare to these guys I found recently: N-able N-central remote management
? What is your best take in cost vs performance among those three? I need a good advice please... Thanks in advance!

Couple days ago my friend was in my home. He told me some interesting things,and one of them was - recover contacts from ost. I tried this tool and was surprised,because of it restored all my old damaged emails. Besides this tool liked me and I have been using it for several days.
