Hi Brink,

Thanks for the post. I saw all the crazy options at the start of this page and was like.... I'm not doing any of that!!! Then the simple post about how to unblock a single file through the file properties was explained later in your post. I highly suggest sticking that into the fore front of all of those work around hacks. It is likely what most will initially be googling for.

Thanks again,

Can anyone tell me why when I remove SaveZoneInformation from OPTION TWO with the reg file it does nothing? I really don't wanna disable zone information but I do wanna allow low risk files.

Hello COKEDUDE, and welcome to Seven Forums. :)

Personally, it's more secure to manually unblock them as needed instead.
