Knees and Blood

In microsoft outlook I'm getting a request for "Location information" it says "Windows" wants to know "My country" if I have a "carrier code" [whatever that is] wether I have to dial a specific number before I dial out. Plus some other contact stuff. If you try to cancel it, you get another window, suggesting it is not a good idea to cancel as the orignal window will just keep coming back immediately. Making microsoft outlook unuseable.

The only way to get rid is to log off completely

Don't worry, your privacy isn't being violated here. The computer needs this information for the times when you might want to dial out from the computer. I don't make calls from Outlook on my computer, but I've included all this information and so I don't keep getting prompted for it.

You can set up this information in the Control Panel. Just select Phone & Modem options and fill out the information. If you don't think you'll ever use the phone or modem options on the computer, it doesn't really matter what you enter in the screen.
