More Microsoft megalomania

It seems like every time Microsoft has a major update for my Windows XP boxes, they think they own me all over again.  When I start Notes after they've fiddled with it, I get this message box.

Yes, I would like to set it now.  And I'd like it not to change again, please.

Hi Andy!

I observed the same after the Office 2003 SP update and just clicked OK and didn't think much of it, UNTIL, I tried to save some Excel data as *.wk4 -- to import into Notes.

An error was presented stating permissions did not allow saving a document as wk4.

I had read the posts about it but didn't think much of it at the time since I figured I would just NOT allow the SP to install; think again.

You may not have run into this issue yet but if you do, there's a registry value to change to allow saving in the Lotus 123 format.

Here's where I pulled it from:

Silly MS - tricks are for kids!
