I dont know why am getting "WMS Idle" window on shutdown. I am running Windows XP SP2. After I hit the end now, then it will take 15 minutes to shut down. When I try to start Outlook, all instances will hand or wont show up at all and then a popup will come about Wms idle. I checked in Event Viewer about a message indicating one task is trying to read regsitry values that another task is still using. I did try to uninstall the Windows Messenger service and performing Detect and Repair on Outlook, but it is not working for me. Can anyone please help me out? Thanks.
