Office 2007 Password Protected Document - Open XML Format Prompt

I have recently upgraded to Office 2007. When using Excel 2007,
everytime the file is saved, I am prompted as follows:

"This document is both encrypted and password protected. The Office
Open XML Format available in the 2007 release provide stronger
encryption. Do you want to increase the security of this document by
converting to an Office Open XML Format? Yes/No"

Is there any setting or changes in the registry to disable this prompt on my computer.

Hi Ahmed,
That is a built-in feature of Office 2007. Office generally expects you to save the file in either the Office 2007 format (.docx, .xlsx, or .pptx) or in the Office 97-2003 format (.doc, .xls, or .ppt).
If you attempt to save in the older format, you'll see a dialog box advising you that the XML formats provide stronger encryption and asking if you want to convert to the XML-based format to increase the security of the document .
You can either start save your documents in 2007 format or change the preferences in the following link.
