  1. Hyperlinks in Excel file suddenly bring up security warning window


    Suddenly on starting up my PC today (this hasn't happened, ever, in the past 10 years or more), when I click on a hyperlink in an Excel 2007 document, I get a security message (below) telling me that 'hyperlinks can be harmful' and do I want to proceed? Driving me crazy now, after over an hour of Googling and trying out suggested 'fixes' (in vain). I have added entries to the registry, added the location (just a local folder) and all subfolders to trusted locations, checked, unchecked various Excel options (all given as solutions to this problem in various forums).... Irony is, each line in my Excel worksheet contains two hyperlinks: the first is to an internet page, and that still works just fine. The second is, as I say, to a local folder, not unsafe at all, but all those now bring up this message. Opening the same file in Windows 7 (dual boot) does not bring up the warning, BTW Anyone know why this is plaguing me all of a sudden (the location clearly wasn't deemed 'unsafe' before today)... and far more importantly, how do I turn this message off once and for all? Windows 20H2 Thank you!

    :)

    Problem with Hyperlinks in Excel (10,13) with Windows 10

    I have a multi tab Excel spreadsheet. I can open any of the tabs, hyperlinks on my Windows 7 system without problems On Windows 10, I get the warning message: Some files can contain viruses or otherwise be harmful to your computer ... I find my Microsoft sites that describe this problem and have suggested adding a registry item.

    \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common\Security
    DWORD: DisableHyperlinkWarning 1

    That does not correct the problem. I m hoping that someone else out there has seen this and has a solid solution

    Thanks

    Will do.... Always want to give credit to a helping person(s)

    Hi there

    I think this method should work depending on which office version you are using -- try the first solution rather than messing about with registry edits.

    How to disable Hyperlink Warnings for Office programs

    I've got no probs with hyperlinks --- works perfectly in EXCEL 2019 (PRO X-64)
