    We are really starting to use Company web as part of our document management
    processes and find extremely helpful.
    One thing that is annoying all users is the waring received as follows when
    opening a file.

    " Opening http://companyweb/etc etc

    Some files can contain viruses or otherwise be harmful to your computer.
    It is imporatant to ensure that this file is from a trustworthy source.

    Open File? "

    Can anyone tell me how to turn off this warning please.

    I am fully aware as to why Microsoft implemented this message, however, the
    powers that be deemed that it should be turned off.

    thanks for your help.
    I have tried your suggestion and have disabled the feature. This did not
    stop the prompt from appearing.
    As well as doing the above I have placed http://companyweb into trusted
    sites and have tried logging off and then back on.
    None of the above has helped. I haven't changed the default group policy
    that comes with SBS, I have checked the local machine policies and don't have
    any reason to believe that group policy may be the culprit.

    Any further help would be appreciated.

    Best Regards

    thanks for your help.
    I found the answer to my question, quite by accident.
    The way to stop the warning from coming up was quite simple.
    All I had to do was open a word document (attachment) from with Outlook. It
    then brings up the same warning but this time it has a checkbox allowing you
    to disable the warning. Once you uncheck the checkbox the warning ceases to
    appear for documents opened from within companyweb/sharepoint.

    Once again thanks for your efforts.

    Best Regards
