To get rid of this dialog box, you must set the option 
InitializationCellWarning to False at both the notebook and global levels. 
However, note that with the warning set to False at the global level, a 
malicious notebook can silently execute code without your knowledge. For 
example, suppose a notebook has the option InitializationCellEvaluation set 
to True and the option InitializationCellWarning set to False. When this 
notebook is opened, the kernel is started and all of the initialization 
cells will execute automatically. You'll have to decide if the convenience 
of avoiding the dialog box is worth the risk.
