I am looking on the internet and ran across this while trying to override this same message so I can run a program. I click on yes to allow but it doesnt do anything from go off the screen. I have tried to figure out what you did by the advice given to you but I can't figure it out so I am wondering if you could possibly explain in a different way or explain what you did when you later found it cane from a diff source altogether. Thanks
If its a file you downloaded, right-click it and go properties and then click the Unblock button, it shouldn't prompt you with the "Open File Security Warning" after that
