About macro virus warnings

When Analyse-it starts, if security settings in Microsoft Excel are sufficiently high, the Macro Virus warning will be shown. Such warnings are a standard feature of Microsoft Office to protect users against add-ins that could, potentially, contain malicious code or viruses. To identify legitimate software Microsoft require all software publishers code sign their software to:

  • Uniquely and securely identify the publisher of the software so you can decide whether you trust the software publisher and recognise it as an add-in you have chosen to install.
  • Assure you the software has not been infected with a virus or tampered with since it was published.

Analyse-it is code signed.

If the Macro Virus warning appears when starting Analyse-it:

  1. Excel 2007:
    Click Trust all from publisher to enable Analyse-it to start and prevent the macro virus warning showing next time Analyse-it starts. Warnings will still show for any other add-ins.

    Excel 97, 2000, 2002 & 2003:
    Tick Always trust macros from this publisher to prevent the macro virus warning showing the next time Analyse-it starts. Warnings will still show for any other add-ins. Click Enable Macros to allow Analyse-it to start.

  2. Analyse-it will start.
