    PowerPoint warning message during presentation

    Locked

    by cheril ·

    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
