Yes.

What value did you set for the option?  What is an example path of
file that still gives this dialog?  If, for example, your
UntrustedPath inclues FileName[{$DesktopDirectory}] (as it does by
default), then you will get this dialog when opening files on your
desktop that include dynamic content that is potentially unsafe.  Read
tutorial/NotebookSecurity in the Mathematica documentation for a
precise description of what is considered potentially unsafe.

The dialog box I am talking about contains the following text:

"
The notebook you are opening contains dynamic content that may result
in automatic execution of Mathematica programs stored in the notebook.

Do not enable dynamic content unless you trust the Notebook's source.
Notebooks stored in directories on TrustedPath are assumed to be
trusted. Notebooks stored in directories on UntrustedPath are assumed
to be untrusted. TrustedPath and UntrustedPath can be edited in the
Preferences dialog.
