Try this:
Delete the value 'OutlookSecureTempFolder'  from the location:  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Security

Edit the registry at your own risk. I recommend backing up that section of the registry first.

The problem in my case was that registry setting sets a location for storing files while AV scans it. That linkage was broken somehow, so the file didn't store there for the AV engine to scan it. Since it couldn't scan, it presented a red X.

Thank you so much.  This was like looking for a needle in a haystack.  Thank goodness you knew about where the needle was located.  It is working perfectly!!!

SCITEAM - I've had instances of this issue recurring, so you may have to delete that registry entry again in the future.
