Excel 2010 hangs opening Protected Files

I have a client who is having problems opening excel documents that are in his Outlook 2010 (With Exchange 2010). Also if he saves them and opens them from the file system he gets the problem as well. It just started happening and he has no idea what has changed.

I found an article that described how to turn off protection, but the options aren't there which I presume is because he runs exchange?

He is accessing this account from within a terminal services session on a 2008 r2 server.

I actually managed to find and disable protected view and this solved the problem, question is how to determine the cause of the hang next.

Hi i found useing this method when trying to open protected excell files useing parameter %1 for all file type of Excel in the “OPEN” settings of Explorer file associations as follow.

Launch “Windows Explorer”
Click Menu Tools -> Folder Options
Click Tab “File Types”
Select item XLS in the list
Click Button “Advanced”
Select Open in the list
Click button “Edit”

Then add “%1” after /e in the box “Application used to perform action:”

If this wont work try adding in the addin "Lookup Wizard", this automagicly fixs every thing

thanks

Hi There!

Ok well I disabled protection from Excel, same thing now happening with Word. It's not crashing. It's just hanging saying opening protected file.
