You might have configured OE to check for messages every x or xx minutes - the AVG panel will be registering that the check is being made.

it is configured to check every 2 mins but outlook isnt running will avg still check

I think it will check - not being "intelligent" enough to know that the app is not running. You've "told" it to check so it will check. Extend the period to, say, every 30 minutes and see what happens - that will confirm (or otherwise) why it's happening.
