    Word 2010 incorrect message "file originated from an Internet location"

    I just removed Office 2007 and have installed Office 2010. When I open templates, a message displays saying "This file originated from an Internet location and might be unsafe." The file is where it has always been... it was never on the Internet, nor was it emailed.

    What is the best way of avoiding this message?

    Thanks.

    I have Office 2007 so I can't check but the article states that once you leave protcted view, the document becomes a trusted document so I wouldn't anticipate seeing the message on future use of the dcument if you re save it.
