Weird Pop-Up While Working Within Windows

So as I am working in Windows within Outlook checking email I get this message titled "Interactive Services Protection" I am going to upload the screen shot cause in all of my years in IT I've never seen this before:

Any help is appreciated.

Which version of Outlook is it?

Did this come up as soon as you tried to check for new e-mails?

Hi,
This occurs due to the new Interactive Services Detection feature available in Windows Vista and Windows 7. The Interactive Services Detection is a feature for legacy applications that detect if a service is trying to interact with the Windows desktop. This feature can be disabled by editing a service on the Windows computer.

To disable Interactive Services Detection do the following:


Click Start > Control Panel and then double-click Administrative Tools.
Double-click Services.
Scroll down and double-click Interactive Services Detection.
On the General tab, change the Startup type to Manual or Disabled.
Click OK and restart the computer.

It should work from there.

It's like User Account Control: it's a way for Windows to protect itself from the user. So, probably not.

Its the new Outlook 13. Got a copy of it from the company I work for. I checked for new email fine but then as I said all of a sudden that popped up...I am kicking myself cause when it popped up and gave me the name of the application that was causing the issue and it listed something with a series of letters and number.exe at the end. Do you think I should worry? Should I run a virus scan?

Does it only come up when you're using Outlook?
