    To disable blocking when files are downloaded or copied from another source adding these two registry entries prevent the error message "Open File Security Warning" that says "Do you want to run this file?" in Windows 7+. As when disabling most security warnings, you should think it through before you do it.:
    Code:
    [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;"
    Change SaveZoneInformation to 1.

    NOTE:

    • 0 = Not Configured
    • 1 = Enabled
    • 2 = Disabled
    You can also Try Group Policy Editor

    • gpedit.msc
    • User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Attachment Manager
    • Enable: Do not preserve zone information in file attachments
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
