    I have a new HP Pavilion dv7, with INtel Core i7, 64-bit, and I'm running Office 2007. In Access, when I click on a hyperlink in a presentation, I get a warning message, "Opening....Some files contain...Would you like to open this file?" There's no error message # or other information that's helpful...I can only click "OK" or "Cancel." If I click "OK," the everything is fine, but I have several hyperlinks in this presentation and it's a nuisance as well as disruptive to the flow of my presentation.

    On my old machine, I was able to disable this somehow...I don't remember how. I have researched it and have come across instructions on editing the registry, including Microsoft's kb925757 article, but they do not solve the problem. I've searched this site, and have only found something for Excel where the solution was to write a macro...I know I didn't do this. There's gotta be an answer to this issue.

    Any help available?

    Personally I use VBA and the "Follow Hyperlink" method, so you only store the hyperlink address as text and use VBA to open the file.
    From what you and I have read there is no satisfactory answer to the warnings, it is typical MS security which does not contain an override switch as it should.
