How do I exit Protected View?
If you must read the file, and don't have to edit it, you can remain in Protected View. If you know the file is from a trustworthy source, and you want to edit, save, or print the file, then you can exit Protected View. After you leave Protected View, it becomes a trusted document.
Exit Protected View and edit when the yellow Message Bar appears

When will the creators of this nasty pests understand? Why are they still attacking "innocent" or ignorant users that doesn't know how to defend themselves against them? If they really hate MS and Windows, why don't they try to attack Bill directly uh? too scared to do that? Show him what you have unless you are just a bunch of yellowish with no life
I'm happy that MS implements a new barrier against this pests... I hope that someday, we (the users) will get rid of it as we have no fault on Windows being popular...
Thanks for the info JMH
