Here are a couple of things to try, no guarantee though :-

1. Open OE then click File, Folder and click Compact All. Close OE then reopen it.

2. Sometimes removing or disabling Windows (or MSN) Messenger causes OE to open slowly. This will be shown by an entry in the system error log: The server {FB7199AB-79BF-11D2-8D94-0000F875C541} did not register with DCOM within the required time-out.

To fix this, run regedit and navigate to registry key
In the right-hand pane, double-click on the (Default) value and delete whatever is entered there, leaving it blank. Click OK.
Now perform exactly the same step with the key directly underneath, namely

Once both (Default) values are empty, OE will open normally.
