Outlook 2007 automatically connecting

I have just installed Office 2007 and am having slight problems with Outlook. It checks for new mail as soon as I load it and I get several error message boxes saying there was a problem and invites me to send an error report. I suspect that it is connecting before the program has fully loaded as it only occurs on startup. After that there are no problems at all. I know there is an option to disable automatic connection but I am blowed if I can find it. Any help would be appreciated.

Many thanks

The message reads as follows. Microsoft Windows search protocol has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

McAfee seems to be the culprit if I disable it, it all works OK.
