    You will be surprise to know that this problem does not occur for files are saved in the file format "Microsoft Office 97-2003. A file is an encrypted file that you protect by using the following methods :
    1. Protection by password
    2. Rights Management (on information) MRI
    3. Protection of workbook in Microsoft Office Excel 2007

    This problem occurs if the computer is running not one active antivirus program that supports the analysis of encrypted content as supported by the Microsoft Antivirus API. In this case, macros are disabled in the file format Office Open XML encrypted. So I would like to suggest you that if you are running any anti-virus, you will have to stop that first. There is no need to uninstall that anti-virus. Just disabling that will solve the problem.

    In addition, macros may be disabled in the file security settings in the program. If macros are disabled by security settings, is the following error message when you try to open the file :
    • Macro security alert has been disabled

    To enable macros, click Options, click Enable this content, and then click OK. However, if you enable macros, the problem mentioned in the "Symptoms" section is reproduced. Security alert this file contains encrypted macros that have been disabled because there is no antivirus software installed that will analyze. To run these macros, remove restrictions on encryption or authorization of this file. Path File: <path and file name> protect me from unknown content (recommended) <More> prevent encrypted macros from the object being scanned for viruses.

    The 2007 Office release provides several settings that allow you to prevent encrypted macros is analyzed for the presence of viruses. This is useful if your program virus detection does not support the programming interface of Microsoft antivirus application (API). By default, macros are encrypted if you encrypt and save a file format Office Open XML. If your antivirus program does not support the Microsoft Antivirus API, your software virus scan can not scan encrypted macros. Therefore, encrypted macros will be disabled.

      • HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Office \ 12.0 \ Word \ Security
    4. In the Edit menu, point to New and click DWORD value.
    5. Enter one of the following value names depending on the sub-registry key you clicked in step 3 and then press ENTER :
      • ExcelBypassEncryptedMacroScan
      • PowerPointBypassEncryptedMacroScan
      • WordBypassEncryptedMacroScan
    6. Click the right mouse button on the DWORD value you created in step 4, and then click Edit.
