Open word and pop up macro

Originally my word 2007 works fine(vista).

Then I opened a word file, it remind some macro are disabled. I just click ok and not enable them.

After that, every time I open word 2007, it will popup as the attached screen.

Seems no report from anti-virus, I deleted following some web, but still not use.

Any suggestion? Thanks

Have you tried adjusting your macro security settings?

I never did it. Any suggestion?

Now my default setting should still be disable macro

It seem just popup reminder that the macros are disabled.

But now even just open word without a .doc file, the popup still come out.
Try to enable macros under the local admin account. Restart word. Then disable them again. Restart.

Now see if the pop up comes up again.

If there are some virus, will this let it in?

Why should do so.
Just temporarily try it. you will only be enabling them for a second. If you have adequate virus protection you should be fine.

May I know why you suggest do so, thanks.
Well my gut feeling is telling me that Office is trying to open some temporary file that contains the macro. So my idea is to let it open that temporary file. Close the file and start fresh. Then you can disable macros again.

:(, can I find this file and delete them
Deleting the files will not stop word from looking for them.

I know this was marked down as resolved but I have found another faster method of resolution that may assist some...

Check to see there is not templates running at the startup of Word. The path: %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Word\Startup should be empty. I found a in my path causing the macro issue.

The %APPDATA% path usuall points to C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data

So the path to look at most likely is C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data

Tip: Don't delete but move the template in the folder to another folder before deleting to confirm this is the issue. Otherwise you may loose a template you needed.

In my comment above, please make sure you change the USERNAME in the path to the user name of the user that is having the issue.
