Warning when using Outlook.

  Border Collie 00:15 11 Apr 2005

When opening Outlook to check e-mails I get a message saying - a program is trying to access your e-mail addresses you have stored in Outlook. Do you want to allow this? Yes or No.

If this is unexpected, it may be a virus and you should choose no, which I do, but I keep getting it.

I've done a virus check with Avast, AVG and on-line at Trend, Norton and McAfee, all show OK.

Has anyone any suggestions please? Thanks. BC

Try running TDS-3 click here for a free 30 day trial and see if it finds anything, it takes ages to scan your pc but its very thorough.

Thanks for that AndySD, I've just downloaded, installed and about to run it. As it takes a long time I'll leave it doing it's stuff overnight. I'll let you know how I get on.

Did the full scan with TDS-3 AndySD but it never found anything.

Thanks Yoda Knight, I'll give them a try.

Whoops, I should have checked the links first. I've been down that route. I had another thread going click here
which I thought was related.

Decided I will give Mozilla Thunderbird and Firefox a try. No warnings coming up so it must be something to do with Outlook.

If you have no viruses or spyware, the program trying to access Outlook could be your address book. I think after what you have tried I would be inclined to click Yes, but make a restore point before you do, and then scan again.
