"This document has been modified" message on trying to visit PowerPoint slides in browser window.

I have a PowerPoint file that is downloaded to a web visitor.  The presentation opens in the user's browser.  So long as the user touches nothing, surfing from slide to slide works just fine.  But if they launch any of the macros that modify the slides and then try to move to any other slide, they get the message:

"This document has been modified.  Do you wish to save?" that must be answered before it will move to the next slide.  Very irritiating.

Does anyone know a way to avoid this?  I've seen this problem posted on other MSO-related forums and never an answer.

Have you tried putting:

Application.ActivePresentation.Saved = msoTrue

at then end of the macros?

Thanks, Graham, for taking time.

Actually, it turns out to be a glitch.  All my Office apps and browser started acting odd.  I re-installed Windows and Office and everything works just fine.
