Security Warning Pop-up and "This tab has been recovered" pop-up. Also password required to complete Outlook download.
2. října 2009 15:49At various times, frequently, when my computer is running I receive this message:
"Security Warning: The current webpage is trying to open a site in your trusted sites list. Do you want to allow this?
Current site: http://www.abcsearch.com
Trusted site: res://ieframe.dll
Warning: Allowing this can expose your computer to security risks. If you don't trust the current webpage, choose NO."
I always choose "NO" but now and then the pop-up message continually appears again.
I've run One Care virus scanner (it ran for approximately 24hours or more) but it has not changed anything.
I also get this pop-up continually. There is an arrow pointing at an icon, tab or some other part of the screen and it says:
"This tab has been recovered. A problem with Internet Explorer has caused IE to close this tab."
Thirdly, every time I download my email messages in Outlook, before the download completes I have to sign in and give my password. This never happened before. I don't know why it started to happen.
And fourthly, (is fourthly a word?) at start-up a message comes on saying Internet Explorer did not close properly when it was last opened. The message then asks me if I want to start IE anew or go back to the web page I was on before IE did not close properly. The thing is IE closed down just fine the last time I used it and I did not want to go back to any previous web page and I did not even want to open IE at that time of my computer just starting up and going to the desktop.
Thanks, Frank C.

I think your PC may have been compromised by spyware if your browser is trying to redirect to a search page that you have not configured.
That may also explain the tab crash issue that IE is reporting and the crash report issue.
I don't know why you need to log in with your credentials in Outlook, that is likely a different problem.
For the Outlook issue, I suggest trying the Outlook newsgroups found here:
For the potential infection issue:
