Neither the Disable all macros without notification nor the Disable all unless digitally signed options in the Trust Center Settings worked, even after rebooting.

Any other suggestions?  Thanks

It may be the spreadsheet(s, or docs) you are opening are allowed to be open because of other settings like a trusted directory or a trusted document or some other setting in the trust center.

Where is the file located.  I have not used Office 365 but in Office 2013 you have to right click on the file, go into properties, click unblock and then you are good to go.

Failing that, it might be trusted locations as mentioned above.

It might be a software service pack issue. have you tried upgrading your office to the latest patch available by MS?

If there's no then I would suggest a repair installation to MS office. this would probably do it.

MS is completely up to date.  the troublesome files seem to be mostly on the desktop which is on the server via folder redirection.  i made the desktop folder a trusted location but that didn't help.  

i repaired office 365 but then outlook wouldn't start at all so i am reinstalling.

This is probably why you had a problem! There could have been problems in this copy of Office already.
