    There is another way to get rid of the annoying message without having to set
    your security to low. You can digitally sign the project. Look for a program
    called "selfcert.exe" on your XP machine to create your own digital
    signature. Then refer to article 832510 in the microsoft KB. Once you have
    completed that process, you can set your macro security back to medium and
    that message should go away.
