Remove Open File - Security Warning

Can remove this from showing up its very annoying.
I don't have gpedit.msc because I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium is there another way of removing it?

I have honestly no understanding of what you're asking. Could you provide us with a screen shot?

Are you talking about when you try to open or run a file that you downloaded from the net?

If so, is it really that big a deal? You can always lower your IE or firewall settings to the point that it stops labeling downloaded content as untrusted, but it's not terribly smart from a security standpoint.

While it may seem obvious if you JUST downloaded a file, it may not be so obvious 6 months later, or if you find a file that was DLed by someone else or without your knowledge. Is it so bad that you are given a chance to double think of you want to run or open something that was downloaded?

Hello Raboragaroo,

This may be able to help by unblocking the file.

Hope this helps,

Yeah, that's what I'm talking about Brink.

But is there away to have it permanently removed from every file instead of manually doing that for all files.

There is a way, but it's quite involved and would greatly reduce the security of your computer. I would strongly recommend not doing that. It would be much easier and safer to quickly unblock the file right after downloading it or copying it from an external source. Once the specific file has been unblocked, you will not get the message for it again.
