I've been googling this and don't seem to be able to find a definitive answer.

FE/BE database where FE is primarily run on PCs running XP, every time users open FE they get "A potential security concern has been identified" with the FE being identified as the cause. They need to click Open to continue.

Is there an easy way to stop this notice from appearing?

Unless you set your security settings to LOW, or place the application in a "trusted location", you will continue to get this message.  Where I work, they have disabled the trusted location feature, so you cannot even to that, but here are the basic instructions for creating a "trusted location".

1.  Open Access, don't need to open a file
2.  Click the Windows button in the upper left corner and click the "Access Options" button at the bottom of the dialog box.
3.  Click "Trust Center" (2nd from bottom of the list on the left)
4. Click the "Trust Center Settings" button, then click "Trusted Locations".  If your Trusted Locations have not been locked, then you can click the Add New Location button, select a folder to trust, and add that.
5. Move your application to the trusted locations folder.

Access options isn't available in the runtime version if you don't have the full Access instailled.

Do your users have any of the other Office 2007 products?  If so, they should be able to create the trusted location from there.

I used the solution of creating a .reg file from http://bytes.com/topic/access/answers/764640-disable-access-security-notice. One of the users has tested it for me and reported back that it worked.
Thank you
