Program trying to gain access to Outlook contacts

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Security' started by [email protected], May 4, 2007.

  1. I just installed Office 2003 on my new laptop with Vista Home Premium OS and
    installed a wireless network in my home. Every time I open Outlook I receive
    a notice from Windows Defender that a program is trying to access the email
    contacts I have stored and asks if I will grant permission. If I refuse I
    get a runtime error and Outlook closes. If I accept I get a notice that a new
    account has been found and needs to be imported. If I accept no new account
    is listed, if I refuse I can't check my email. Task manager shows no other
    programs running, MacAfee, Norton, and Windows security sweeps do not find
    anything malicious. No new accounts are listed. Any ideas?

    I suggest you post to one of the Outlook newsgroups.

  3. Except that none of us has ever seen this message in Outlook and Windows
    Defender is throwing the message. Sounds like Windows Defender hasn't quite
    figured out how Outlook's Email Security update works or the user is using
    an add-in that needs to be updated:
