comment Will device-based “wear leveling” equalize access across both SSD partitions?
Okay, well I know Win7 on my system correctly recognises both devices as ssd's, since it doesn't want to defrag them. I guess I'll have to follow the instructions at How can i know if TRIM command is working on windows 7 to confirm if that aspect is okay. I'll worry about what to do next if and when I discover it isn't okay. Thanks.

comment Can I disable this Windows (XP) Security Warning?
Excellent answer, thanks! Particularly since you've saved me the bother of having to think too much about whether (and to what extent) I might want to bypass the default security measures. So far I'm only really concerned with downloaded *.zip files from that one subtitle site (my aging father can no longer watch movies without subtitles, and a surprising number of the older titles in his dvd collection don't have them). I've just added it to my "Trusted sites" as above - everything now works exactly as I want, without compromising security elsewhere.

@Rik: That's it! I'd need to think about it a bit before deciding whether I want to unilaterally disable the feature for all downloaded files (assuming that's even possible). But now I understand what's going on, it doesn't bother me so much. So although my actual question title asks about disabling, it turns out I'm pretty much satisfied with being given an explanation. If you'd post that comment as an answer, I'd be happy to accept it.

@Doktoro: One of the few things I have downloaded is Google Chrome. I have to have IE because Windows Update refuses to use Chrome, but that's the only thing I normally use IE for. Windows File Explorer (which is what's involved here) doesn't seem to have any configurable security options.
