Excel Start Up and "Enable Macros"

I have a Excel Spreadsheet that when launched, a macro produces a "splash screen" with specific disclaimers and protects the formulas with basic workbook/sheet protection.  My problem is when I launch it in Excel 2010, if I do not have macros "enabled", it opens the workbook anyway and does not display the splash screen until Macros are enabled.  This gives access to the workbook without the proper disclaimers.  Is there a way to insure that the workbook cannot be opened unless Macros are "enabled" thus forcing the user to enable Macros before getting access?
