Is there a way to disable this option by default?
With "by default" I mean:
I'm used to right click in Windows Explorer to create new XLSX files. By doing this, these files always have this option enabled and I have to manually disable it for every new file!
Is there also a registry key I can use?
For example I found this:
But it is empty...
Please, need help, this is so annoying!

Every time i've got a privacy warning, i have been able to remove it, by adding one line of code. It happens when you create an object in your code, and you dont "erase" it afterwards. example: I want to add a button in my sheet by using a macro. btnTemp = ActiveSheet.Buttons.Add(6, 6, 100, 60).Select This code actually creates an object floating somewhere inside the file, and this is what triggers the warning. If I add the following code, and runs it agains, the warning is gone. Set btnTemp = Nothing So look for any object that have not been erased/reset. That will probably fix it!
