Randonmly we have an on some computers an svchost-process that hosts windoword.exe (2003) and some other apps amd consumes 100percent of a processor core, even if word or outlook never has been started.
The fact that this process exists seems to be ok, but it's unclear why it reacts like this. It could be corrected if outlook will be configured not to take word as editor and the restart the computer and reenabling word as editor. But the question is why this happens.
The configuration is vista32 and office 2003sp3
Is this a known issue?
