Tried to do some other fixes, but after running the " Outlook /resetnavpane" command, my Outlook now presents the following warning message in Wndows 7 - " Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer" " Program Name: Microsoft Office Outlook" It then offers an option to " Change when these notifications appear" along with detailed file information.

I have also changed the Outlook.exe properties security info to " full control" and nothing changes.

How do I get rid of this prompt without compromising the security of the computer?

Since I started having this problem my scrolling feature on my mouse pad has stopped working in Outlook only as well, any suggestions?
