attachment security warning in outlook 2007

I have added level1Remove and Level2Remove in the security key for outlook 2007 in regedit.

But I still can't just open a pdf from the email, I get this dire warning and can only save it to disk.

The warning reads:
Warning!

This file may contain a virus that can be harmful to your computer. You must save this file to disk before it can be opened. It is important to be VERY certain that this file is safe before you open it.

Filename: xxxx.pdf

Type: Adobe Acrobat Document

This doesn't' happen with word or excel documents, only pdfs. Outlook 2007 on windows 7, and I'm running adobe reader 9.0.

The logic is a bit reversed - Have you added the pdf extension?

Quote from site :
"I had the same problem.
Entered both level1remove and level2remove and left them blank.

BINGO!!! Can open attachments!
Thank ** for that!"

Hi- Ok, I tried that, removing the .pdf from level1remove and level2remove(left them blank). I still can't open attachments but I haven't rebooted, do I need to do that? Thanks.
