Can't open or downloaded files from Microsoft Office or Excel

If I download an Excel or Word file from my email, I can't open it. It says " starting opening protected view.
Number6 has a good answer, but here's a link to the Microsoft Office support site in case you need additional information:
When you are in protected view mode in Office (which you are by default), the files you receive will be read only. To edit these files, you can turn off protected view by Opening an Office program like Word, then go to FILE>OPTIONS>TRUST CENTER>TRUST CENTER SETTINGS. Click on “protected view” then uncheck the option to “enable protected view for outlook attachments.” After you change that setting, you should be able to edit files at will.
