Windows 7: Windows Pop-Up Nuisance

Windows Pop-Up Nuisance

Recently I began receiving a pop-up whenever I try to drag a file from a folder or drag it back in. Both folders and files were created by me and are on my desktop. It occurs with all folders and files no matter the age. The pop-up says, "Windows Security- These files might be harmful to your computer. Your Internet security settings suggest that one or more files may be harmful. Do you want to use it anyway? OK - Cancel" There is a shield on the pop-up with an exclamation point on it. I've done everything Imran and Vinod from Microsoft Community Forums suggested and all to no avail. Computer Hope did not help. The pc, as a rule, was never connected to the internet but connected to the internet only for the amount of time it took to install Windows 7 updates. After the updates were installed there was bad lag which remains and the pop-ups began. Anyone know how to get rid of the pop-up?

BSOD and crashing while gaming. A real nuisance
Hi guys, I built a rig roughly three years ago, which has had a constant and nightmarish issue that re-occurs randomly to haunt me. Briefly, my computer has always run fine in windows mode but when I'm gaming (e.g. Team Fortress 2, Empire: Total War) it either goes to a BSOD that varies in...

A feature I think is more nuisance than benifit. Anyone agree?
Is anyone else tired of the OS grouping all similar programs together on the bottom panel when they are minimized? I really miss how it was in XP when I could decide where all my icons were on the bottom panel regardless of whether they were seperate instances of the same program or not. This made...
