    The last automatic update from Microsoft really messed up my machine! The error message never occurred before it. I tried to get to [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy Objects\ but the tree root (since it progressed down) for me only went to [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy\. So I tried the other line [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Associations] and that stopped at [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\.

    I'm think that MS 's latest "update" did a lot of registry changes.

    This would be normal if you haven't already set the group policies that would add those keys and values to the registry.

    I guess I do not understand enough. I only did Regestry editing that was given to me on the forum. I program/write databases in MS office and use Excel spreadsheets basic tracking and loading tables in a database. I have no idea what a group policy is. If I could reset the machine back to before the last MS update I would but they automatic. I was not given a choice.

    That's ok. To help clarify for everyone, which registry editing did you use and apply?

    In addition, what error message are you trying to get rid of?

    If you mean for the "Open-File Security Warning" message, then you could use the download in step 5 of OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to disable it.

    What editing I did was probably when I 1st joined the forum. I has been a great aid for. I do remember just seeing the link you re-provided for me. I will try it now, I though since it was for Win7 that is was not applicable.

    Luckily, it'll still work in Windows 10 as well. Please let us know how it went.

    Are you using some sort of download manager that could be interferring with the download of the .reg file?
