Security Warning Dialog Box

Posted by yitz98 on 7-October-2007

Have you ever tried to run a program or file from across a local network? If so you have probably received the Windows ‘Open File – Security Warning’ Dialog Box:

Very often this causes delay in opening the program or file. If you would like to bypass this protection, follow these instructions:

1) Right Click on the IE logo (or go to Start > Run and type ‘inetcpl.cpl’ without quotes and click OK ).

2) Choose the Security tab at the top and then click on the Local intranet zone.

3) Click on the Sites button and UNCHECK the item ‘automatically detect intranet network.’ Leave the rest checked.

I can’t explain why, but for some reason windows is unable to automatically determine your local network when this is checked.
