Excel Problem

I have an application which opens an excel spreadsheet upon clicking a link.
Everything is working fine apart from the fact that before the excel sheet is displayed, The browser comes up with a popup saying "The workbook you are opening contains macros....".
The problem is that if the user toggles between the browser and any other application before clicking the yes,no, or cancel buttons on the popup, the popup goes right behind everything and the browser goes into a hang state.
Any ideas to keep the popup on the top even if the user toggles between applications.
Any help much appreciated.
I agree. Here's the link:
