User running Windows XP, Office XP - both patched to the latest and greatest. As of mid-last week, user says when opening Outlook, get "External Application trying to access Outlook Address Book...". We installed the Outlook Security Add-on that tells us what app is trying to access Outlook. It's the clbcatq.dll under the System32 folder - which apparently is associated with com+.
We've run a full system virus scan and found nothing, so I'm wondering if it has anything to do with the latest MS security releases (2/19).
Is there anything else I should check prior to 'allowing' this .dll to access outlook?
