    Locating Macros (XP SR1)

    When I open a workbook I receive the message 'Macros main contain Viruses. It is always...' with the option to Disable Macros, Enable Macros or More Info. I do not have any macros. Is there a way of detecting them by using other software? I have already looked in Tools>Macros>Macros and there is nothing there. Thanks.

    Hi

    You can get this warning even if there are no macros. The following article should help.
    All of a sudden, when I open the file, it asks if I want to "Enable or Disable a Macro". There are no macros in this workbook

    Tony55, tanks for the prompt reply to this. Another problem I have is that the Tools> menu lists a couple of add-ins which I can't find on the 'Add-Ins available' list. They may be something I installed some time back. How do I find these/delete them from the menu list. Thanks.

    If these are "errant" menu items that were not cleaned off properly you can (these would do nothing when pressed or give an error)
    View -toolbars -customize -commands tab
    Drag from from the menu and they will be removed.
