When I download some files I am unable to open them until I right-click, choose Properties and click the Unblock button (see the image in this post: The file came from another computer and might be blocked).
I have read that this is intended behaviour for security reasons, but would like to disable this feature PC-wide so that it never happens.
I haven't found a solution to the problem at all for Vista Home edition. In the Pro edition there is the utility gpedit.msc. This doesn't work on the Home version.
I changed the registry with the answer given in this thread but it didn't have the desired effect. If not a utlity, can anyone clarify why the registry fix wouldn't work for Vista Home? And if possible give some suggestion to try and fix this issue. Thank you.
Interestingly, this only happens when I download the file with FireFox. If I use Internet Explorer it doesn't happen.
