MS Office security pop-up, calling taskmgr.exe an Excel add-on.

I was editing a very simple Excel spreadsheet and this message popped up. Since when is task manager an Excel Add-on?

I can't say for certain that task manager was running (minimized) at the time, but it's entirely possible. All I know for sure is that after I got the pop-up, task manager was not running.

What's going on?

Check your Add-Ins that are installed. Uncheck all of them and one by one enable them till the time you get an error. Tell us what happens if you do that.

Sid, I just tried to delete the question, but you were too speedy!

Apparently, I inadvertently dragged my taskmgr shortcut to the spreadsheet, causing the pop-up.
