Windows 10: Web Links in favorites bar now generating security warning

    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.

    Click image for larger version.

    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.

    It says that the 1607 update will fix this, but that update was applied and the problem still occurs.

    Redbeard,

    There is no mention of version 1607. There is no fix for version 1607. The Cumulative update mentioned is only for version 1511.

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
