Turn off Windows Warning when opening File

Question by GetMeNow | 2015-12-05 at 20:59

I have downloaded an application from the Internet and every time I want to open or execute the EXE or program file, Windows is showing the following warning message dialog.

Open File - Security Warning

The publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software?

Publisher: Unknown Publisher

Type: Applicatioin

This file does not have a valid digital signature that verifies its publisher. You should only run software from publishers you trust.

There is indeed the possibility to deactivate the option "always ask before opening this file", but I do not dare doing that. However, I would like to deactivate the warning only for this special case.

Can someone help me? It is quite annoying that always this dialog is displayed.

Just click with your right mouse button onto the file and select "Properties" from the context menu.

At the bottom of the new window, you can find the section "Security" and the text: "This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer.".

Next to that, there should be a button called "Unblock". If you click on this button, the error message will no longer be displayed for this file, but it will be displayed for other files also in future.
