We were assisted by EE in a question that made us place this question.  The insert that's reponsable is "it is actually possible to craft a non-addin PowerPoint macro-enabled file".  

That said, is setting our ms office apps to the most secure settings (macro) is the only way to protect ourselves from a powerpoint or word/excel/mail for that matter?  Also, is there a way to view he VBA contents without opening it (powerpoint/excel/wor)?
