I have recently updated my Windows 10 OS which was a mandatory update and right after that I have started experiencing some issue with my MS Access database. The database is showing me a security warning regarding some active content in the file every time I open it. Also each time I open my database file it creates a duplicate file in the same location.

 

This issue was not there in my previous version of Windows 10.

Simply click on the Enable Content button.

Have you setup a Trusted Location for the front-end's directory?

@Daniel_Pineault I don't think the point was enabling access. It's easy enough to see clicking the button will do that. The real pain is seeing this notice and having to click the button every time.

If you setup a trusted location you don't get prompted.
