How do i get rid of this message?

How do I get rid of this? User on Outlook 2002 sp3 keeps getting this pop up message every few minutes and has to keep closing it out.

"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".

That is because of a security update

This is the program many use to prevent it

It shouldn't just keep popping up with no user interaction.  This message is supposed to come up when another program other than outlook is initializing a mapi session or trying to actually send mail or access the address book.  What else is running on this machine?  Look in the Outlook addins and see what's in there and also the Com Addins.  You can find these by:

In Outlook, go to tools, options, other tab, advanced options..... Here you will see Addin Manager and Com Addins.

Check and see what's running in the taskbar (by the clock).  It could even be your Virus scanner causing this as it's continuously scanning emails and stuff.

And like Sunray said, you can uninstall sp3 and this will go away, but then you lose the security features it provides.  Kind of a catch-22.

Thanks for all your help.  I installed the MapiStore program.  It hasn't popped up yet.  I'm upgrading the User's office to 2003. We'll see what happens then.
