I keep getting this warning when I try to open hyperlinks that point to my USB storage drive.  I put these links in my tasks so I can open a Word document.  I have gone into Trust Center and turned off Macro Security.

Hi, jdown888.

Macro security has nothing to do with those warnings.  It only controls security of code in Outlook.  I am not aware of any way to turn that particular warning off.  I get the same warning for links to items on my hard drive.
