    No they are not downloaded files ... It occurs for any file/folder on my desktop.
    You sure they're not actually in the cloud? Do you sign in with an MS account? Is Onedrive syncing your Desktop?

    For example, if I create a new folder on the desktop by right clicking on a blank space on the desktop, and selecting: "New > Folder".

    And then drag/drop it to the recycle bin. The warning appears.
    so unlikely the Cloud is involved unless the Desktop he is using is actually on OneDrive, which has happened to me twice.

    That was my thinking....

    The warning can also be generated by its location on the computer.
    - I can take a perfectly innocuous file that generates no warnings when it is moved about anywhere else but if I move it to my IE Favourites folder the warning will appear if I move it on from there.

    It happens when a new folder is created on the desktop. So nothing from the internet or cloud.

    And no option to unblock because it is already unblocked.

    And definitely not on One Drive which is disabled.

    And only happens when the folder is drag/dropped to the recycle bin.

    If the folder is right clicked and delete selected, it goes straight to the recycle bin without any warning!

    Might be quicker to just reinstall Windows 10.
