Side Comment: This Microsoft Corporation suck!

I've posed a question to Microsoft and instead they've provided me several

options to find my answer. Wouldn't it be simpler to just get me some help!

It's too bad that we are all very reliant on this system which is

unfortunately, the best one to have. Just the customer service sucks.

Anyway, here is my question. Whenever I open my Outlook, I get this warning:

MICROSOFT OFFICE OUTLOOK SECURITY NOTICE

C:\PROGRA~1\MICROS~2\OFFICE12\OMSMAIN.DLL

THIS APPLICATION ADD-IN HAS BEEN DISABLED. ADD-INS MIGHT CONTAIN VIRUSES OR

OTHER SECURITY HAZARDS.

Then, since I don't have a clue what this means, I just merely choose:

DISABLE APPLICATION ADD-IN.

What I'd like to know is what is it and is it really safe or not?

Please help me, if you can, I'm feeling down and I do appreciate that you're

around.

Make it a great day. - Maria

Assuming you're using Outlook 03, go to Tools/Options/Other tab/Advanced

Options button and then the ADD-INS button. Report back what is there.

If you're not using Outlook 03, which version are you using?

Are you using the Outlook Connector? This is used to connect to Hotmail and Live mail. Uninstall it from Control panel and if you need it for Hotmail oor Live, reinstall a new copy.

This addin should be safe to use as long as it hasn't been altered by

something else. The addin is from the Outlook Mobile Service. If you do not

use this service, you can leave it disabled. You can do an Office Diagnostic

to verify if the addin is still the original via Help-> Office

Diagnostics...

BTW: The way to contact Microsoft Support is by calling them. This is an

end-user newsgroup. Microsoft offers this option to you as many issues have

been discussed here already or there are other end-users out there willing

to help you out for free. This self-help offering from Microsoft helps you

to save a few bucks by not needing to contact their paid support service.
