Windows 7: How to get rid of "Open file - security warning"

how to disable open file security warnings for GOOOOOD

THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT AND IT WORKS!!!! FINALLY!!!!!





I really hate those "are you sure" security questions. They just dull your senses towards security and people just learn to click through them anyways.
So, lets just save the trouble and get rid of them altogether.
  • Fire up the Control Panel
  • Select "Internet Options"
  • Security
  • Custom Level
  • Under the "Miscellaneous" branch
  • Find "Launching applications and unsafe files"
  • Set it to "Enable (not secure)"
  • Save your way out of there.
Now the security warnings are gone. However, Internet Explorer will complain everytime you open it by displaying an error page with a yellow information bar.
To get rid of it:
  • Run "gpedit.msc"
  • Under "Computer Configuration"
  • Select "Administrative Templates"
  • "Windows Components"
  • "Internet Explorer"
  • Change "Turn off the Security Settings Check feature" to "Enabled"
That should stop the annoying error messages.

None of these steps works for me (well I didn't try ztaylors as it's not IE that doing it for me)
Once I try tens' idea, I just get a box that says 'Open File, Do you want to open this file?' instead of the 'Open file - Security warning...' which really doesn't help any...
It's only some shortcuts/.lnk files on my desktop that do this, I don't know why. I've tried to remake shortcuts and everything
Thanks if anyone can help
