    I read the post again and methinks we jumped the gun.

    Yes every file downloaded is flagged, but

    ksdixon is asking about other file types (mp4, jpg, etc).

    I just tried opening an mp4 and a jpg file that were flagged and neither one presented the UAC dialog.

    ks - what application are you using to open the files from Explorer?

    The only thing I can think of is file association out of whack. In other words, the machine thinks the filetype is an executable.

    video files: Media Player Classic (part of the K-Lite Media Codec Pack)
    picture files: Windows Photo Viewer (restored it with a reg file from here)

    That might be on the right lines regarding the File Associations being messed-up. Win10 reguarly resets to the modern app defaults despite me downloading a reg file from here to tell it not to.

    As a temporary solution, rather than manually and individually unblocking each file in the right-click properties window, I went to Internet Options and changed something in the Advanced tab so that the dialouge box doesn't appear anymore.
