Annoying pop-up in Microsoft Outlook 2002

Hi everyone,
I'm using Microsoft Office 2002 (10.6822.6830) SP3. Every time I try to create a new message I get a prompt telling me:

"A program is trying to access e-mail addresses you have stored in Outlook. Do you want to allow this?
If this is unexpected, it may be a virus and you should choose "No"."

Naturally I do click No and everything seems to work fine. I have run Symantec Antivirus with the most updated definitions and have found nothing.

I don't know what's causing it and it's really annoying to have it pop up every time. Can anyone please help me? Thanks.

It does seem that you have an MS outlook virus in your system. I would suggest that you take a look at this and follow the instructions there.

Hope this helps. :)

Thanks for the quick reply. I have performed a full system scan using Symantec Antivirus and it found nothing. However, I will definitely follow the instructions on that link you've provided and then post a follow-up.

Many thanks for your help.
