It's really getting on my nerves. As is stated in the dialog you mention, edit the values of the TrustedPath and/or UntrustedPath options in the Preferences dialog. Though before doing so, please take a moment to consider the security implications. If you download a notebook from an untrusted website or receive a notebook via email and open it, Mathematica could automatically execute (potentially malicious) code with no additional steps. This is discussed in the tutorial/NotebookSecurity documentation page. Another option would be to simply store your notebooks somewhere besides your Desktop directory. From the mentioned documentation: By default, the UntrustedPath option value contains the user's desktop folder (where web browser downloads are likely to be stored), the user's configuration folder (where email attachments are likely to be stored), and the computer's temporary directory. If the user has configured his or her web browser or email program to save downloaded files in nonstandard locations, then the user is encouraged to add these locations to the UntrustedPath option value. Yet another option would be to upgrade from 6.0.0 to 6.0.1. 6.0.1 has a better notion of what dynamic content is safe, and will therefore put up the warning dialog less frequently with the default settings. -Rob
