Outlook will throw this warning when it does not detect any anti-virus software on your PC and when CompanionLink or any other 3rd party application tries to access Outlook. To stop this you can either install or update your anti-virus definitions, or disable this Outlook security measure all together. Depending on your Outlook versions, here's how.
