Repeat displays of "Your privacy matters"

My office keeps displaying "Your privacy matters" when starting office applications. This seems to cause exceptions when it is displayed from a .Net program accessing Excel via interop. Any ideas on how to stop the display of the message.

I have tried the SetupProd_OffScrub.exe to completely remove office and reinstall.

I am working on a Domain and do not have full control over some of the settings.

Thanks.

If you open Excel via double-clicking Excel icon directly, this issue won't be reproduced, am I right?

I suggest you go to File > Options > Trust Center > Trust Center Settings > Privacy Options > Privacy Settings, uncheck the box of "Turn ON optional connected experiences" > OK. And then please restart Excel for a check first.

No, I rebooted my computer to give it a fresh start and when I selected Excel from the Start bar the Your privacy matters message was displayed. Able to reproduce 3 times before the message stopped being displayed.
