Virus Warning when Hyperlink is clicked

    Hello,
    My compay uses an intranet for various forms and documents. The main page
    uses hyperlinks to access the forms or documents placed elsewhere on the
    network.

    This doesn't occur all the time, but only for a few files. When a user
    clicks on a link, a warning appears that states:
    "Opening File Path: path to filename
    Some files can contain viruses or otherwise be harmful to your computer. It
    is important to be certain that this file is from a trustworthy source.
    Would you like to open this file?"

    I understand that this occurs in Microsoft Office and I can't disable it. I
    can work around the warning by opening up the forms in a web browser.
    1. How do I that while the file is still in its original form? (i.e. Excel,
    Word, PDF, etc) I don't want the files to open up as another webpage.

    Thank you.

    Sounds like you aren't "trusting" the location the file is stored at.

    This is an IE issue and has to do with your Security settings in IE. Check in
    IE\properties\Security\Internet your security settings
