A program is trying to access email addresses you have stored in Outlook

Whenever I'm in Outlook and I click on "New" to create a new message I get the following error:

A program is trying to access email 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".

How do I know if this is being caused by a virus, or something else.  We use TrendMicro antivirus.

Should I have any concerns with downloading this free utility?  Another peer told me downloading something like that could allow spyware to become a real problem to the network.

Is their a way to deal with this through Outlook.  Can't I disable this feature instead of having to download a utility?

The other way is to remove that office security update.. Removing that would make ur outlook less secure.
I have not heard of any complaints with this free utility ..
