Open File - Security Warning

Posted: 01-28-2008, 06:40 AM
I get this annoying warning when I open and .exe file. The warning gives me
the option to deselect the 'always ask when opeing this file', but it
reappears the next time I open the file and the warning is reselected even
though I already deselected it. The warning has a help link on the bottom '
how can I decide what software to run' and all the help links talk about is
downloading which has nothing to do with this warning dialog box. How do I
get rid of this annoying security warning on this file. If I go to
properties for the file, there is an unblock option which I select and apply,
but it too reappears the next time I open the file properties.

Disable the prompt.

I disabled the prompt as shown, but it still shows up. I uncheck the always
ask box in the warning dialogue box, but it still shows up and with the
always ask checked.

Not sure what else to say, these functions do not seem to be working
properly to me, but then that can probably be said about the whole operating
system.

Are you saying you made the changes to your registry and you're sill getting
the UAC prompts?

If you have, restart your PC and see if that disables the prompts?
