I've got this Excel document that whenever I open it tells me the document has macros and makes me choose whether to disable or enable macros. The thing is, there ISN'T a macro in the document, at least that I am aware of. How do I make this annoying thing stop? How do you delete a macro that you can't find?

Holy fuck shit motherfucker shit. Read comics. Fuck shit shit fuck shit I sold out when I did my job. Fuck fuck fuck shit fuck. Sorry had to do it....


Revenge of the Sith = one thumb up from me. Fuck shit. I want to tittie fuck your ass.

I am assuming you've also looked in the Visual Basic Editor and Real Basic Editor as well?

I hate to say this, but I would not rule out a macro virus. We recently had an out-break of the Melissa.97 virus on our OS X network (because no one thought twice of allowing macros in a standard MS Word document, not to mention someone in another department *knew* that many of his users had the macro virus and did nothing about it). The good news is they are not that destructive, and should be easy to eliminate.

The quick was to eliminate these to save it as a text file (or a format that doesn't have macros) with space, comma, or tab delimited, and then reopen the new file in excel.

I'm not certain that you have a macro virus, but it's possible. I would definitely run ClamAV just to be sure.

If you open the file after saying "Disable Macros" can you see any macros listed if you use Tools - Macro - Macros?

Does Netgear have a bad reputation? We've had the same Netgear router for over two years and never had a problem - but no one seems to mention Netgear. Are they not as good for some reason?
