Turn off "Open File - Security Warning"

Here is another way to take care of this problem.

Registry Option:

HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesAttachments Set SaveZoneInformation to 1.

NOTE:

0 = Not Configured

1 = Enabled

2 = Disabled

You can also set this via Group Policy at the User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Attachment Manager node. Enable the "Do not preserve zone information in file attachments" setting.

Can you put that in a reg file? That is not the format I used to seeing. I'm used to one of these formats.

reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\1" /v "Flags" /t REG_DWORD /d 219 /f

Open up notepad. Copy and paste the code below into notepad. Then save the as whatever.reg and change the save as type to All Files.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Download]
"CheckExeSignatures"="no"
"RunInvalidSignatures"=dword:00000001
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Attachments]
"SaveZoneInformation"=dword:00000001
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Associations]
"LowRiskFileTypes"=".zip;.rar;.nfo;.txt;.exe;.bat;.com;.cmd;.reg;.msi;.htm;.html;.gif;.bmp;.jpg;.avi;.mpg;.mpeg;.mov;.mp3;.m3u;.wav;"

Thanks for Kelsenellenelvian

But this worked just fine:

OK so to completely remove that annoying window on XP SP3 with IE7, this should do the trick:

@echo off
:: disable security warnings
reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\0" /v "1806" /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\1" /v "1806" /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\2" /v "1806" /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\3" /v "1806" /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\4" /v "1806" /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\3" /v "CurrentLevel" /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\4" /v "1806" /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

You wouldn't want that line here, read the description:

This zone contains Web sites that could potentially damage your computer or data.

I'd change that to

reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\4" /v "1806" /t REG_DWORD /d 3 /f

(the default) or delete the line.

Thank you. I fixed that now.

You don't necessarily want to do that for any zone other than the required zone(s), and I'm guessing that's 1 (Local Intranet) and 2 (Trusted Sites). There's discussion about which zone is which, and what almost all of those values mean, in KB182569.
