Microsoft Virus Warning, can I disable it?
Posted on 2008-06-24
I am trying to open a powerpoint presentation from a hyperlink. I am able to open it however an annoying virus warning message keeps coming up each time I open it. Here is the error:
Opening file: <path to file><filename>
Some files can contain viruses or otherwise be harmful to your computer.
It is important to be certain that this file is from a trustworthy source.
Would you like to open this file?
I am running Windows 2000 and Office 2000. I have already searched Microsoft Knowledgebase and reviewed article 190270 which was no help. Also I was unable to get article 212290 to come up. I know there is a fix for this in Office XP and 2003 but upgrading is not an option. Does anyone have a way to disable this warning, or workaround it?
