Windows 7: Turn OFF Open Attachments from a Trustworthy Source?

Turn OFF Open Attachments from a Trustworthy Source?

Irritating “Only Open Attachments from a trustworthy source” Dialog Box

Does anybody know how to STOP the irritating “You Should Only Open Attachments from a trustworthy source” Dialog Box . . . that pops up whenever I try to open a Microsoft Word document attachment received in Outlook 2007 . . . under WINDOWS 7? (Under VISTA I COULD turn if off.. what gives with Windows 7? Is this the Gestapo we're dealing with?)

There is a greyed-out check box that offers “Always ask before opening this type of file” . . . but there is NO WAY TO UN-CHECK it.

Big time waste for me . . . since I open “Word” file attachments all day long (I know they are safe).

Any ideas?
