In my opinion, I would block sender if it is a message. If it popped up
when you opened an email, then block that sender. If it was nothing to do
with Outlook then do not block.
Run a virus scan of your machine. If this warning is genuine, you might
usually expect to hear which software has spotted it. A random message that
informs you you have many problems is unusual in that you would normally
need to scan the system for such a number to be picked up. It maybe that
you have an active scan running continually but I feel unlikely.
To resolve, C Cleaner is pretty good but I might highly recommend Malware
Bytes which is also free and has worked for me.
