    Well I've run "Disable_Zone_Checking_for_All_Users.bat" and "Enable_Zone_Checking_for_Current_User.bat" twice, but I'm stile getting the Open File - Security Warning. The first time I try to save something like a zip file from the interned there is a 10 to 12 second delay before the naming the item opens. This also happens with several other application like Excel. Seems strange to me. At least it only happens once until the next day or a restart. Gee other the those things are working fine. I have been saving automobile pictures for years and it had become a real pain when sorting and have to deal with that interruption before I can open an image.

    Thanks I just downloaded it and will try to fix the drive. There were a couple of errors earlier that may have caused the issue.

    You're welcome. I hope chkdsk is able to repair the drive for you. :)

    Just to note, that if you run the "Enable_Zone_Checking_for_Current_User.bat", it will enable "Open File - Security Warning" again.

    I've gotten no where today, I tried several disk repairs all found nothing wrong and the stupid Open File - Security Warning is still in effect and I can only access the M drive with a desk top shortcut. I have to get some work done today. I think it was around half time of the 1st play off game today when I started trying to fix things. None of the Administrator stuff worked either. My Dell computer started acting up within days of my warranty expiring. There is just something really wrong with this machine!
    I will try again tomorrow. As always I really appreciate yours and other folks.

    I copied all the files off the troubled drive to another external drive. Currently I am formatting (not a quick format) that drive. What is still driving me nuts is the stupid (to me) Open File - Security Warning. Of course I constantly uncheck "Always ask..." What is really strange is from groups if files downloaded at the same time a few do not get the notice when opened. I've tried coping a file and then pasting in a different folder and the "Always ask..." pops up. Is there a way unmark a file as being down loaded from the net?

    Other than unblocking them as you open them, you could also use Option 5 below if you have a lot of files in a folder you wanted to unblock all at once.

    I just did some more testing apparently it depends upon the site you down loaded from. There is a site I've been using since 2002 to get most of my car photos. They do not trigger the notification.

    Just got you message, I'll try it.

    I do not know how to log in as an Administrator. I am the only one that uses this machine at one time I know I was an/the administrator. I went to Tutorials and phrased the question several ways "How to log in as an Administrator" every response was if you already were. How do I check to see if I am an administrator after logging in (which I assume is starting the machine).

    The tutorial below can help you determine if your are signed in to an administrator or standard account.

    If you may have meant "Run as administrator" instead, then that would be this below.

    Yes I did set things up correctly, I am an Administrator.
