Windows 7: Latest Security Play

02 Jun 2010   #1

Windows 7
Latest Security Play

Greetings -

<rant>I am rapidly finding out that W7 designers have made a rookie security-101 mistake (seriously) - in the enthusiasm to make everything really secure, make it so complicated that people just turn it all off.... </rant>

drama aside, I am upacking a zip file from a trusted source. The Zip file contains a Visual Stusio 2010 project in VB.Net. Thus it also contains a file called AssemblyInfo.vb.

W7 in its infinite wisdom has decided that I need to be protected from myself and refuses to let me unpack that file.

I already have UAC turned off entirely due to another W7 issue, but to no avail in this case.

How do I get W7 to let me run my own machine and unpack this zip?
