CPU running at 100%

I've no idea why but OSA.Exe, which is in MS Office XP/Office 10, causes my CPU to run at 100% and the whole 'puter dawdles and almost refuses to do anything!! Have I been bugged??

Hi, I would suggest in IE you go to Tools>Internet Options then in Temporary Internet files delete All Files and Cookies.

It might also help to run Ad-Aware or similar,
followed by Start>AllPrograms>Accessories>System>DiskCleanup
followed by Disk Defragment.

Thanks, have done so and all(?) appears to be as it should. Hope it continues!
