    Web Links in favorites bar now generating security warning

    September 15th, 2016, some windows updates were applied to several of my PCs. I believe it is this one: Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3189866), causing the problem.

    I use the "Favorites Bar" for a series of high use Web Links. After the update, every time I use one of the web links, I get a security warning.

    I checked and .URL is an assigned file type, assigned to "Internet Browser". Changing the web browser does not fix the issue.

    I found a tutorial for fixing a similar error for .LNK files, but that fix does not work.

    Disable "Open File - Security Warning" Message

    Any ideas?

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3199375 is a hotfix for Windows 7 & 8. It provides a link to a new cumulative update for Windows 10 version 1511. There is no information about Windows 10 version 1607 [the anniversary update] and no new cumulative update has been issued for this version.

Build 10074 ESD download - Warning GB links are for PRO not Enterprise
Hi there If you download the build 10074 GB ESD version - the Enterprise link still gives you the PRO version -- not that it really matters unless you specifically want Enterprise (for example to test Windows to Go). Cheers jimbo
