Open File Security Warning

By rabjac ·
I've recently applied a GPO 'lockdown' (with Desktop and My Documents redirection enabled) to one of our W2K3 (SP2) AD member servers. Now whenever a user tries to run an application they are presented with an 'Open File - Security Warning' dialog box.

If I take the computer object out of the GPO linked OU, I don't get the message.

Anyone know how to get rid of this annoying message?

Open File Security Warning

Hi Robert,

I'm exactly in the same situation. Did you got rid off this warning message ?
I think it's an IE issue. Perhaps, adding file:\\server\share to the intranet zone...

Any help would be very appreciated.

No Warning when launching a networked exe.

If you get the
Open File Security Warning
The publisher could not be verified. Are you sure
you want to run this software?

Go into
Internet Explorer 7 properties:
- Security Tab
- Click (select) Local intranet icon
- Click Sites
- Click Advanced
- Type the server's name or IP address in the top box and click Add
- It will show up in the Websites list box
- Click Close, OK, OK

Run the app without the warning :)
It seems that Windows cannot detect the local network, so you need
to supply the name(s) of the local network's servers.
