Outlook 2007 wont leave task manager, or auto restarts after exit.

 My setup: I have a Dell Precision 690,  Windows Vista Ultimate, 64-bit.

After a day of being pissed off at Outlook 2007 because it wont stop auto starting and showing up in Task Manager even after a hard kill task.

 Issue: Outlook 2007 gets closed by (End Task, Office Start Exit, X Close) goes away on screen but pops up in Task Manager after seconds. I am trying to setup Outlook Anywhere 2007 to test a remote Exchange 2007 server but I can’t because every time I try to run the Outlook 2007 Exchange setup it says Outlook must be closed. I close it but it comes back in task manager!!! This is frustrating, I’ve had problems with Outlook 2007 not closing out of processes but never where it comes back a few seconds later.


Make your guesses what do you think it is?

Solution: I found out after some words with the computer that my Sidebar Outlook Widget was at fault, even when closing outlook the Widget auto starts Outlook 2007 backup in the background in second for you. How nice. Turn off this widget and it’s all better.
