Unknown Macro

How do I find out information regarding unknown macros that are detected in my Outlook 2003?  When I start my Outlook account, I get a Microsoft Outlook security warning message about macros are detected by Avery Dennison Corporation.

I don't feel comfortable trusting this macro(s) until I know more about the source.  Can you offer any suggestions?

Hello mrgettys,

you can google the name, and Avery [http://www.avery.com/] is a a label printer program so you could have installed it in word as addin or something for pritning labels and markers. It probably installed an addin for Outlook too

in general if an Office app warns and displays a name for the macro, you can relate the name to other software installed on your pc or google it, if its unknown chances of others having it as part of a software package or spyware is large :-)

hope this helps a bit

Thanks, bruintje,

I did try to google it but I couldn't really find anything on Avery Dennyson.  When I searched on Avery Dennison, I found the link that you have in your reply.

I've verified that it is an Avery Dennyson macro.  Do you think this is the same?

Greetings, mrgettys.

Open Outlook and press ALT+F11 or click Tools->Macro->Visual Basic Editor to see the macros.  

well that was teh way it spelled in your first post ;)

anyway you can check for any addins being loaded on outlook startup

1. in Outlook goto to Tools, choose Options
2. Click the Other tab, click the Advanced button
3. Some addins are listed in COM Add-ins, others are under Add-in Manager

you can check or uncheck them there, if they are known leave them or if they are unknown you can disable them there

Hello, bruintje,

I apologize for the confusion I created!

I have tried all of the steps that are listed above but I have yet to find any macros for the Avery Dennyson Corporation.  If we do not want to trust these macros, is there any other way to stop this warning message from popping up when Outlook is started?
