Every time I open Outlok Express I get a warning from McAfee: sychost.exe 'a program is trying to access a guarded file' namely c:\documents and settings\owner\local settigs\application data.

What is sychost.exe and should I allow it?

Thank you

looks like your av is trying to tell you that you have a virus possibly.

McAfee is telling you that it detected svchost.exe accesing a folder it shouldnt be, therefore possible virus infection.

Read through this---then make sure your virus scanner is fully up to date and run it.
