Outlook taking control of active window

  1. I am using Office XP and for some reason Outlook just started to take control of my active window. In other words when I have Outlook open, and I am typing on AOL, or something else, Outlook just takes control and acts like it is the active window. So whatever I am typing gets cut off as it goes to Outlook. This is very annoying, as I can only get a few sentences, or letters sometimes in, if I am lucky! I have to shut down Outlook when I am not checking my email, and that is annoying. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. As I said this just started happening and I have been using it for a long time. Thanks.

    Oh yeah I am running WinXP if it matters:)

    Alright I figured out what the problem was. I happened to install some stupid voice recognition software. I haven't been using it for over a month and forgot all about it. Well long story short, I deleted it today, and wallaaah(sp??). Everything works ok now :)
