    Hi there,

    I am running XP Pro and Office XP using Outlook. Security is by way of Zone Alarm, Spybot and Add Aware. Email scanning is done by my ISP using McA.

    A few weeks ago I reformatted the disk and reinstalled all the software because of a problem and I think its back again. :eek:

    I downloaded Service Pack 3 about two weeks ago but this problem only started today. The problem that has just resurfaced is simple. When ever I send an email I get the following message in a pop up box.

    "A program is trying to access e-mail addresses you have stored in Outlook. Do you want to allow this?

    If this is unexpected, it may be a virus and you should choose "No"."

    I have run Sypbot and a deep scan of Add aware and it all looks clean. i have also run Hijackthis and the log is as follows:-

    I hope that someone will have a solution to stop this annoying box every time I want to send an email. More importantly, I hope I have not picked up some virus or something nasty.

    Many thanks for the assistance.

    Cheers

    Many thanks to those that racked their brains. I have just got off the phone from Microsoft and they had a very simple solution. :) It was a conflict between Ella Anti Spam software and Office service Pack 3! :mad: Solution is to get rid of Ella. :eek:

    Cheers

    It might just be that I'm inexperienced at reading HiJackThis logs, but I don't see a resident Anti-virus. The one that's recommended the most, on these forums, is AVG. It's free. I'd suggest downloading and installing if you don't have a resident A/V.

    FinestRanger,

    Thanks for the advice but I am protected by my ISP. :) They scan all mail prior to it going into my mail box so I don't need on one my machine. (y) No worries about having to update definitions either which can not be done automatically using a one way satellite. :eek:
