I get the following error when I try to install some application on my windows 7 64 bit system.

alt text

How do I turn this off as I know that the applications that I'm installing are trusted.

I have turned off windows defender and tried to tweak internet explorer security settings according to the first few google results but yet I have the same error. (I also created a new user account and tried importing new registry keys but nothing even then)

How can I solve this?

Two things to try,

Reset IE, open IE and go to the Advanced tab and hit the reset button.

Use Microsoft System Restore, pick a date before this problem started.

will uninstalling IE solve this issue? I don't even use that browser really – rzlines Jan 12 '11 at 8:51
You cannot uninstall it, did you do as I suggested? – Moab Jan 12 '11 at 15:23

The solution is here:

  1. Create another user (admin)
  2. Switch to the newly-created user
  3. Run regedit
  4. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings
  5. Right-click -> export to a public folder or root dir
  6. Switch back to your original account
  7. Remove the the above keys
  8. Run the exported .reg
