Microsoft Project Pro. 2003 hangs at start-up

I get this when I try to start MS Project:

"The command is attempting to use a web page from gbui://mainpage.htm/. You have not identified this site as a trusted site in Internet Explorer"

Then it goes on to explain how MSP cannot display pages from untrusted sites so the command cannot be executed. I keep hiting the OK button and the warning keeps poping up.

Does anyone here know what's going on?
Has anyone here experienced the same problem?

Thanks in advance, geige

Trusted Sites Restriction

Project Guide pages can access the Microsoft Project object model with the window.external object (window.external gives access to the object model of the application hosting Microsoft Internet Explorer Browser components). In this case, it applies to Microsoft Project. For more information, see the external object reference in the HTML and Dynamic HTML SDK on MSDN.

Access to window.external enables a page to read, write, or manipulate data on the user's hard drive. For this reason, it's important to restrict which Project Guide pages are considered safe.

Pages are displayed only from sites that the user has explicitly identified as trusted in Microsoft Internet Explorer (this applies to scenarios where the Project Guide is ON as well as OFF).

For pages located on an intranet file share, such as file:\\servername\sharename, the user still has to specify this file share as a trusted site in Microsoft Internet Explorer. Pages located on the local hard drive are always considered trusted.
