Windows 7: Can't Disable Warning msg in Word

14 Jun 2015   #11

Windows 7 Pro-x64

There were some security patches for Office products in the last round of updates. I had to OK an add-in for Word that's been there for several months. So, something changed with security. I don't remember much about the older versions but I suspect there's been some settings in Office products "reset" with the updates. Check the options in your versions of Word.

Good question. As soon as I run Icacls I'll let you know. Thanks for the tip.

Thanks Carwiz. I'll look at the list of applied updates for Word and see if any may have inflicted the damage. Curious that both 2003 & 2007 are set up on my old XP machine the same way as on 7 (options, parameters, check boxes, and all that stuff) and there is no issue on the XP machine.

From Uni's suggestion, I ran the icacls cmd and set the integrity level of the mpg video file to Medium. This had no effect on the HLINK.dll message - I still get it. With the need to press on, I have decided to change the call from a hyperlink to a macro where I can control authentication, certificate, and access rights. Although this is NOT a true solution to the problem, and being convinced it is an HLINK.dll issue, I am leaving this thread unsolved in the forum, but moving on. I wish to sincerely thank everyone who provided their valuable time and suggestions. It is important to know that there are people out there who actually give a damn. Thank you, one and all.
