Windows 7/Outlook/SBS2003 crashing issue

I have a client with a new Windows 7 laptop.  Added it to his SBS2003 domain 
via http://servername/connectcomputer, all seemed to work as normal.  
Installed Office 2007 and SP2, setup Outlook for him, added his extra 
mailboxes, all looked fine.  After the weekend, he came in and was unable to 
open Outlook, it crashed with an uninformative error.  I narrowed the issue 
down to communication with the server : with a clean Outlook profile, as soon 
as I put in a server name and clicked Check Name, Outlook would crash.  
Resolved this temporarily by doing a system restore back to before installing 
Office, reinstalled it, set Outlook up again, all seemed well.  For 3 days.  
Now this has recurred again, and I'd like some help in resolving it 
permanently.  

I have seen this on one other site, client running Windows 7 on a SBS2003 
domain, with Outlook 2003.  I worked around the issue in that case by setting 
him up with a POP account to the server, as he wasn't making use of a lot of 
the extra functionality, he was happy with that.  This is not an appropriate 
solution for my current client.

The error in the event log:

Faulting application name: OUTLOOK.EXE, version: 12.0.4518.1014, time stamp: 
0x4542840f
Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 6.1.7600.16385, time stamp: 
0x4a5bdadb
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x0005205b
Faulting process id: 0xe9c
Faulting application start time: 0x01caa84f964cc7c5
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\Microsoft 
Office\Office12\OUTLOOK.EXE
Faulting module path: C:\Windows\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll

I've not been able to find any reference to any similar error online, and 
would greatly appreciate any help.

I'm just guessing here but I'd start by insuring that the bios is up to 
date and the nic cards are flashed.

I've never seen this on my setup for what it's worth.

Hello Nigel,

Thanks for your post and others' input.

Generally I also agree that it is an odd issue since it will occurs when trying to resolve the user's recipient from Exchange/GC server. As supplement, there is a known 
compatibility issue that you may have a look at:

Windows Small Business Server 2003: Windows 7, Windows Vista and Outlook 2007 compatibility update
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/926505

After the above steps, please use the Outlook "Connection Status" and "Test E-mail AutoConfiguration" feature to confirm this issue again. E.g. you can see at which step 
Outlook begin to hang if you click Reconnect button and reconnect AD and Exchange server.

Little known Outlook feature - Hold down [Ctrl], right click on tray icon - "Connection Status" appears
http://blog.tiensivu.com/aaron/archives/1398-Little-known-Outlook-feature-Hold-down-Ctrl,-right-click-on-tray-icon-Connection-Status-appears.html

Please also make sure both Windows 7 client and SBS server has applied the latest Service Pack and updates. 

Hope this helps.

Hi Nigel,

Thanks for your update.

Based on your tests, since it works fine under Safe Mode with Networking, it seems the Outlook dll files are conflict with other 3rd party processes or services that caused the 
crash. Let's try a Clean Boot to narrow down the root cause this time.


Clean boot
=================
Let's disable all startup items and third party services when booting. This method will help us determine if this issue is caused by a loading program or service. Please 
perform the following steps:

1. Click the Start Button type "msconfig" (without quotation marks) in the Start Search box, and then press Enter.
Note: If prompted, please click Continue on the User Account Control (UAC) window.
 
2. Click the "Services" tab, check the "Hide All Microsoft Services" box and click "Disable All" (if it is not gray). 
3. Click the "Startup" tab, click "Disable All" and click "OK".

Then, restart the computer. When the "System Configuration Utility" window appears, please check the "Don't show this message or launch the System Configuration Utility 
when Windows starts" box and click OK.

Please test this issue in the Clean Boot environment, if the issue disappears in the Clean Boot environment, we can use a 50/50 approach to quickly narrow down which entry 
is causing the issue.

For more information about this step, please refer to the following KB article:

How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista (it can be used for Windows 7 too)
http://support.microsoft.com//kb/929135 

Please have a try.

Oddly, this did help narrow it down.  I say oddly, because I thought I'd 
replicated this by stopping services/killing processes when trying to get the 
same level of services running as safe mode with networking.  After much 
renabling, rebooting, and testing, it appears to have been the Pest Patrol 
component of CA's Etrust Integrated Threat Management product causing the 
issue.  I have left it disabled for now and will contact CA regarding a fix.  
Thank you for your help.

Hi Nigel,

Glad to know the information was helpful and you find a work round. You are welcome.

Actually we are on the same track, "Clean Boot" does the similar job as you did  but just in a more " systemic" way : )

Please do not hesitate to post back if there is positive feedback from CA or if you need any further assistance from me.

Have a good day.
