On a locked-down system, the macro security dialog box may always show low security (not recommended) so that you do not receive macro warnings and cannot change the security setting.


An administrator can set keys in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE subtree which overrides the HKEY_CURRENT_USER keys, so that only an administrator can change the settings.
