Windows 7: How do I disable the "The publisher could not be verified..." warning?

How do I disable the "The publisher could not be verified..." warning?

My toolbar contains an icon that links to a program in my "C:\Program Files (x86)\" folder. Every single time I click on the icon I get the attached pop-up window. The window keeps appearing even if I uncheck "Always ask before opening this file" and click "Run" and enter in the admin username and password. Why does the message keep appearing and how do I disable it entirely?

Hello MrSnrub, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if option one in the tutorial below to unblock the .exe file of the program may help get trid of this message for you.

Thanks a lot! The link contained the solution. I had to move it to my Downloads folder and unmark it as a potential security threat.
