    Windows Attachment Manager - Disable Blocking Downloaded Files


    Howdy,
    I wanna Disable downloaded files from the Internet from being blocked in Windows (Registry Only).
    Code:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Attachments]
    "SaveZoneInformation"=dword:0000000x
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Attachments]
    "SaveZoneInformation"=dword:0000000x
    The problem is Entry Value.
    Microsoft says it's "ON 1" or "OFF 2".
    TenForums says it's "ENABLE 0" or "Disable 1".
    To Disable should I use "2" according to Microsoft or "1" according to TenForums?
    Who's wrong here?

    If you want to disable “Do You Want to Run This File” dialog message copy below registry text into a blank Notepad file and save it with a .reg file extension.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Download]
    "CheckExeSignatures"="no"
    "RunInvalidSignatures"=dword:00000001
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Attachments]
    "SaveZoneInformation"=dword:00000001
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Associations]
    "LowRiskFileTypes"=".zip;.rar;.nfo;.txt;.exe;.bat;.com;.cmd;.reg;.msi;.htm;.html;.gif;.bmp;.jpg;.avi;.mpg;.mpeg;.mov;.mp3;.m3u;.wav;"

    Export the current values and note save location. Then just test the values and you'll know in 5 mins.

    edit: a cursory reading leads me to believe that Brink is talking about SaveZoneInformation while the MS article is referring to DefaultFileTypeRisk which is a different value calling your non-MS anti-virus programs to do a scan before downloading. Am I missing something that you're not ?

    Your method works only when I have a sure way of doing that in Windows, then I set it and export the registry to compare the values.
