comment Windows 7 warns me when opening my own shortcuts from the toolbar
@Yorik, In which case would i have security problems with this solution? I have always been annoyed of those prompts, does it actually prevent any virus from operating? I have antivirus program already to protect me from running executables with viruses, do i even need this feature then?

comment USB Device Not Recognized -warning on Unknown Device
@Ramhound, at the moment of that warning, nothing was connected to them. The cables are adapters for mini-usb, and the other cable simply extends my computer usb slot to my desk, so i can plug in my usb sticks there etc. So basically those two cables are just extensions of the wires, no electronics in them.

comment USB Device Not Recognized -warning on Unknown Device
@Ramhound, i would have to unplug all USB cables, right? That is not possible since i use them, and the warning comes randomly, not every day or even every week maybe. Anyway i unplugged them and put them back in, problem stays.

comment USB Device Not Recognized -warning on Unknown Device
The weird thing is that all my cables are working fine. So how can it sometimes not recognize it? Is my motherboard going to explode soon?

I have no such "unblock" button... what version you have? I have had this before and i have scanned my computer several times since then. But i fixed it now though, but i still would like to know the real solution.

Okay i fixed it now: i created a shortcut on my desktop first, then i cut the shortcut to the toolbar. Silly, but it works. I have no clue how to make it work properly.

Where is this "unblock" button? I cannot find it in properties.

Yup, I wanted to add the path without exe, because i am afraid they will rename those exes in future versions... as they have done before.
