Re: Powerpoint Viewer security message

I tried this question earlier but with no success. Trying again to see if any other experts have any ideas.

When I Hyperlink to external files from within a Powerpoint Presentation and then run the show from the viewer,  I get a security alert when I click on a link. This happens for all file types, Word, PDF etc. My presentation has over 50 links so I get 50 messages. It is very annoying after the first few messages.

    I have tried this, but it's not PowerPoint but the viewer that is the issue:

    "Keep in mind also that this registry change won't affect the PowerPoint 2003 viewer, just PowerPoint 2003 itself. The viewer will still issue warning messages when you click hyperlinks."

    Unfortunately, there's no way to turn it off for the viewer.  Just the full application.  Sorry.
