I have an XP Pro machine with Office XP.  Anytime I open an email in Outlook I am asked if I want to allow my address book to be accessed.  I always say no, but what could be causing this ?

Run checks for Spyware/Adware on your PC with Adaware SE from www.lavasoftusa.com
and check the PC for viruses. www.grisoft.com

It might be a virus trying to access your contacts to send an email/spam to them.

Is this the exact warning you are getting . If yes use that click yes program

That is just a workaround but mostly can be considered as a solution . It is the security update of the outlook that is causing this warning and only perfect solution is removing the security update which as you know is not advisable
