It can be hard to know when to allow macros in your Microsoft files. Follow these tips to
ensure you don't accidentally allow a virus to run on your computer.
• Whenever you open an Excel workbook that contains macros, you can verify their source before you enable them. Just look for the digital signature, an electronic stamp of authenticity. Learn more about macros
• Set your macro security level to control what happens when you open a workbook that contains a macro. You can choose to run macros based on whether they are digitally signed by a developer on your list of trusted sources. (To find this setting, go to the Tools menu, Macro submenu. Then, click the "Security Level" tab in the "Security" dialog box).
• Watch out for macros in other Microsoft software. This scam involves Excel, but if this technique works, scammers will produce similar tricks using Power Point and Word Documents.
