Blocking my access to files
 
Hi, i got sent some world of warcraft patches through a friend on MSN...we
done it on my lan so it went alot quicker, they sent fine but when i try open
the files i get this error message; Windows has found this file Potentially
harmful, to help protect your computer, Windows has blocked access to this
file.

Now i followed instructions on how to bypass this problem but it still
doesnt work has any one got any ideas or clues??

Kind Regards Joel

If you're sure you want to run these files, you can right-click the files
and select Unblock.
