WinXP, PowerPoint 2003.

In presentation mode, I get an annoying Office warning dialogue box, when I click my hyperlink to Media player.

Can anyone suggest how to get rid of this?

Hi Bizzo,
Windows XP, HP Laptop.
PPT 2003, then 2007 same message:

It is an Office message to the effect:
This program can contain viruses harmful to your computer. It is important to be certain that this file is from a trustworthy source. Would you like to open this file?

I have 'allowed' this file permission on all the Firewalls.

I have also added this file address to the PPT Trust Centre, per MS info.

The video file has been copied into the relevant PPT folder.

The interesting thing is that I do not get this message on my PC. (Different Firewall?).

I have contacted my Anti-Virus program providers, and they tell me that they cannot help me because this is an Office warning.

Check your macro settings.

You receive a virus warning message when you click hyperlink to a program in Office 2002 or Office 2000****2
