Default Outlook Warning Message

When I open my Outlook 2002 program I get a message that says a program is trying to access my email contacts, and if I should allow it. I do run Norton Antispam along with it. If I don't allow this program access to my the program locks up. I run Norton Internet Security along with a couple spyware programs. Any ideas? Thanks...

Do your spyware programs pick up anything? I'ts probably NIS acting up and you outlook wanting to reach out to the net. I myself would go ahead and allow it. It don't seem to be no big deal.

Sounds to me like its the anti virus or spyware programs that are trying to access your contacts to "sweep" them...
Does it say the program or process ?
