I have installed Outlook 2002 on a friends laptop, running Vista. It works fine apart from one issue : When the program is started, it issues a warning to the effect of "another program may be trying to access your e-mails. If you do not recognize it, it may be a virus" and then gives the option to reefuse (the same message reappears instantly) or to allow it access for a time defined period. I have run McAfee without finding anything and there are no other programs running. Anyone have any ideas 'cos I'm pulling out what little hair I've got left!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This may be due to a poorly written COM add-in. Check your outlook COM addins to see if there are any running. Disable them and re-enable them one by one to find the rogue.

This could also be caused be something like the Palm Desktop, or the Blackberry Desktop, connecting into his mail account. Those applications run in the background, in the system tray, but open the mailbox as soon as they’re launched.

Good luck,
Tom
