    I installed Office 2013 and these options were enabled by default. While I appreciate the pro-active, protectionist nature of Microsoft, this solution should have been noted in the pop-up instead of the generic,”Check your permissions, settings…” etc.
    Solution
    File/Options/Trust Center/Trust Center Settings/Protected View
    Uncheck all the options.
