Problem : your internet security settings prevented one or more files from being opened
solution:
1. Create another user (admin example A)
2. Switch to the newly-created user
3. Run regedit (typing it in run)
4. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings
5. Right-click -> export to C:\ drive as .reg
6. Switch back to your original account
7. go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ Internet Settings (
delete internet setting)

8. Run the exported .reg
9. Restart.

Same issue. Nothing is helping!

Thanks for all the tips folks but nothing seems to work.
@Alex - I can not run a system restore. Do I have to try it in Safe mode or something?
@UJK - I cannot create another user.

@Everyone - I tried Repair etc. It is asking for password and doesn't accept mine.

FYI: I have Ubuntu installed too.

Would really appreciate your help.

Thanks in advance.

this worked for me

I had downloaded freeware and was prevented from opening the exe. I tried all the complex fixes described with no result. In the end I:

- Copied the exe file to a flash drive
- created a new user (admin).
- Switched to the new user
- Clicked on the exe and installed the new program
- I then copied the thumbnails of the program, switched users and pasted the thumbnails for the app on my desktop

Same Problem,No Solution

I have tried every solution possible. None of them work for me because :-
1. I tried to Create a New User account. I click on "Manage User Account", nothing happens.
2. I tried resetting,setting every option on local intranet and internet. None of them work ultimately.
3. After downloading Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, the problem won't let me get to installation only. So can't scan for viruses.
4. In many places I have seen instructions to delete the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\FolderTypes\{ef87b4cb-f2ce-4785-8658-4ca6c63e38c6} key in order to fix this issue but it is not showing up in my registry at all. Also, I am not able to use regedit,gepdit or mmc as even that brings up the same error.
5. System Restore too is not accessible due to the same error.
6. I can't access the group policy management editor either due to the same problem.

Please help me out. This is very frustrating.

I'm having the same issue, only with multiple pop-ups, on my htpc. I can check by viewing more details what it is stopping from opening, which are mostly non essential items. However, when I restore it works fine for a few days, then I start losing usb functionality. For example, my HTPC remote will stop resuming the computer from standby, and things of that nature. it's getting very annoying. anybody have any suggestions that I can try, I'm about ready just to sell the thing and be done with it.

Hardware,
AMD A8
ASUS FM1 pro MOBO
ocz ssd and hitachi 3 tb HDD
8 gb ram
Ceton Infinitv 4
huappage 1250

7 professional x64, SP1

I think those are the relevant items, but I can provide more info if needed.
