How to disable Open File - Security Warning dialog box in Windows Vista?

Post by David Ocam » Mon, 26 May 2008 03:34:10


Dear Windows Vista Community,

Every time I want to open a .url file using the customized Links menu on the
deskbar (channel bar), I get a dialog box with a security
warning message "Do you want to open this file?" How do I disable this
security warning dialog box from popping up? I am confident my Avast! virus
definitions will detect and intercept any virus or spyware attached to any
url before the file is opened, so I really don't need this feature, it is
annoying. Thanks for any help you can provide as to Vista security
settings!

Kind regards,
David

Yeah, that's to make sure the user really meant to ask the
OS to take an action. Kind of like a gun that asks you if
you really want to fire a bullet after you pull the trigger.

It's a safety feature.


Why would you want to? Just to rid yourself of a minor
annoyance?


Relying on AV in this way is doomed to failure. AV and other anti
programs are meant to supplement good computing practices, not
as a substitute for them.


Sorry I'm not being helpful, but I hope in some small way this does
indeed help - though not the way you might have expected.

Thanks for the explanation, I kind of figured that it was to protect the
user's system, but I still would like to know how to disable this security
feature in Vista. Does anyone know? Thanks.

So...I decided to make an account on this forum JUST because I hate it
when people like "Fromtherafters" act all *** y and give people crap
answers to legit questions...sigh

Anyways

So David. I happen to be looking for an answer to the same problem. I
know what I'm doing when I double click a file and I also find it
annoying to be asked if I actually want to proceed. Both Vista and XP
both give annoying security halts on multiple actions. One way to fix
this in Vista is by turning UAC (User Account Control) That is if you
haven't already...I hope you have. But, you will still get a security
prompt when trying to open ANY .exe file you might download. And that's
what I wanted to turn off as well. So, here are some links for doing
that. Both for IE and for windows in general. Hope they help. They did
for me..... Rafters should post his attitude somewhere else.

Oh and delete doesn't have take an extra action...I'm assuming Rafters
is referring to having to empty the recycle bin before a file is really
deleted. You can bypass the recycle as well by hold SHIFT before hitting
the delete button in Vista. In XP this also works, and you don't have to
confirm the delete command when Shift is applied. Cheers....

So you think that *really* deletes it?

So, where did you dig up this old post - what is the
date of that post you replied to?

yes it REALLY deletes the file...and YES i know files deleted are stil
on the disk drive unless they are permanently destroyed before DELETED
that's not what the term "delete" refers to. Yes, the post was from Ma
of this year. But you seemed to find your way back to it though....whic
was my main reason for posting, not to really help Ol' Davy. I'm sure h
found a forum on his own with other people actually willing to answe
his question. If not, someone else may need the links...that's why
posted the links anyways. Enjoy your postin

He uses a news reader. Your post to the thread found HIM.

One of the advantages of using a Newsreader, rather than that
quasi-forum you're using that scrounges the majority of it's posts
from Microsoft servers.

Oh, I see now. Delete means something other than delete in
your world.


Ahh, trolling. I guess I'll ignore you then.


I answered his question, and as you decided to do his work
for him you found answers even older than the post was - so
the answer was available on the web all along.

I'm not against people reducing their security if that is what
they want to do, but people who can't find out how to do
so on their own should be made aware of the downside
especially if they are doing it just to avoid that extra click
that is sooo annoying to have to do.


I'm sure everyone is flocking to those sites as we speak.

Enjoy your trolling...

Trolling...had to look that one up. You're obviously much more int
forum threads than I. I happened to be searching for the same answer a
David (As I said earlier), and only posted my links because you didn'
answer his question at all. Only gave him reasons for why he shouldn't.
I thought that's what the Technical Support > Computer Help > Window
Vista > Vista Security > area would be about. Apparently I was wrong. I
I wouldn't have known the definition of "Trolling" I would have used i
myself. Keep yelling "From the Rafter" man, I'm sure people get allo
out of it

He did NOT WANT YOU TO "ARGUE" WITH HIM OVER WHETHER OR NOT THE "MINOR
ANNOYANCE" WAS WORTH DISABLING, YOU ****ING MORON. What is wrong with
people like you? Would you like to go around wagging the finger at any
Windows user who wants to customize his computer the way he feels like?

Then the ending of your comment: "Sorry I'm not being helpful, but I

"Not the way he might have expected?" In other words, your assumption
is that you are somehow doing him some king of "favour," if only he
would be smart enough to catch it, eh?

You pretentious f*cking imbecile.

Start Menu > Run > gpedit.msc > User Configuration > Administrativ
Templates > Windows Components > Attachment Manager >
In the right pane, double click on 'Inclusion list for moderate ris
file types' > Enabled > Under 'Inclusion list for moderate risk fil
types' > *.* > OK
Do the same for 'Inclusion list for low risk file types'

Try this Sub the *.* with .url

I think........... Do you know which risk class the file type is?
that would be where you place it I think

I had the same problem but with media files such as .jpg, .wmv, .tif
etc.

I placed them in the moderate one and restarted the computer now when
double click on the file type I no longer get the open file securit
warning.

also look at the other groupings in the attachment manager click o
them once will give you a description of what they do

Hi,

This article may help someone...

'see here
( http://www.yqcomputer.com/ )

=== text from the website ===

To reset or change back the open or save behavior when downloading
file with IE 7 in Vista, simply run Registry Editor (type regedit i
Start Search), and then navigate to the following registry key.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\AttachmentExecute\{0002DF01-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}

Note: {0002DF01-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} is the Class ID for th
InternetExplorer.Application object.

Inside this registry key, there will be a list of value dat
corresponding to all the file types that you have unticked the lway
ask before opening this type of fileoption check box against.

Reset Registry

Simply delete any unwanted registry values for the file type o
extension that you want to reset or return the filetype to their defaul
download behaviour.

For Windows XP, 2003, 2000 and older, there is simpler method to rese
the Always Ask setting
