Hi, I have the following problem: When we try to open a link to a Office document from an internal website, the end users get an Internet Explorer 11 security warning. "This program will open outside of Protected mode."

However, we have used GPO to add the site to Local Intranet zone and disabled the Protected Mode. I have verified that the GPO is applied by looking at the Internet Options  - Security tab.

Any ideas why we still get this security message from Internet Explorer 11, and how to fix this?
