Outlook message - "program is trying to access e-mail address info"

I only get this when my computer boots up and I launch Outlook.
If I close and re-open Outlook, the message does not come back up. But if I restart the computer, the message will come back up when I launch Outlook.
I've been clicking "Deny".

Text of screenshot: "A program is trying to access e-mail address information stored in Outlook. If this is unexpected, click Deny and verify your antivirus software is up-to-date. For more information about e-mail safety and how you might be able to avoid getting this warning, click Help." Then option for "Allow access for [x minute]", Allow/Deny/Help buttons.

Would an add-on be causing this? Or another program, such as Lync 2010? I checked autoruns and don't see anything running at logon that could be causing this to come up.
Anyway to just get rid of the alert?

Lync does access Outlook in order to sync calendar data as well as contacts.  It would be nice if that was a little more descriptive.  Do you have any more info?

The thing that bothers me is that Lync should be a trusted replication/synchronization source so that should not be coming up

Do you have Microsoft Active Sync, Pam software or any other synchronization software?

Unfortunately that's all I can gather. I checked event log and this message doesn't show up there. I just show add-ons and Outlook loading, but never an error or warning or information containing this message.

I did try closing Lync and Outlook, then re-opening in order, but the message did not come back up. It's only after I reboot.

Maybe I'll remove Lync from startup then reboot and try Outlook.

Yeah, I don't think ti is Lync though.  Lync should be transparent.  I would proceed out of curiosity but I would also do a complete uninstall to be sure to remove the variable completely.

What is in your addins section for Outlook

I would be curious to see an .ARN file from Autoruns (In the Options of Autoruns, uncheck "Hide MS and Windows Entries").....

Yeah it's an add-on!
Custom built-one by a dev team no documentation of course.

I wonder how I can add the add-on to trusted so that it doesn't keep prompting
