Windows 7: Image downloads suddenly tagged with security warning

Image downloads suddenly tagged with security warning

Just recently (within past couple of weeks), all my downloaded image files are blocked with the security warning when I try to open them. This includes one's that opened without the warning previously. I save my downloads to an external hhd.


While the couple of extra clicks aren't that big of a deal, I am curious as to why it's happening. I use MS Security Essentials and do the updates for that and Win 7. Also installed Malewarebytes recently, but restored to before installation. Anyone have any knowledge of why this is happening?

Hi PBzeer-

It might help to know what the security warning is and, perhaps, you might post a link to an image that others can try to download and reproduce your problem. I don't use MSE so, I'm not sure I'd be able to help.

Like this one, but type is jpg/png/gif etc. rather than shortcut (as well as the appropriate Name and From for my file).

First thing I checked, and they haven't.

You didn't provide a link to a file we can try.

Did you check the Internet Settings in Control Panel or in your browser?
