Upgrade issue from Access 2000 to 2003 (Security messages)

    I just upgraded my version of Access and have an irritating problem. I
    was using MS office 2000 (which included Access 2000 as part of the
    package), and have just upgraded to Access 2003. It does not feel
    like an improvement, and seems to have certain downside risks!

    The I have issue is security messages that keep popping up when I open
    an application,. The message says "Security Warning" "This file may
    not be safe".....and goes on to mutter ominous thoughts about viruses
    in macros. I can click and ignore it (which I do) or basically close
    the application. I do not care for wither of these options and just
    want it to stop. I know the apps are OK becuse I have been using them
    for years with no trouble.

    How do I get rid of these messages? I don't have the security segment
    of Office 2003, and cannot find any solution on the MS website.

    Help and suggestions most welcome!
