can't handle possible unsafe but in fact perfectly safe files

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Security' started by beerstaxaties, Feb 15, 2008.

  1. I made a zipfile from all my bookmarks/favourites on my old xp-system in
    order to be able to use them on my new vista laptop computer. But besides the
    fact that i am absolutely sure that the favourites are perfectly safe, my
    computer keeps coming up with:"these files are possibly unsafe and windows
    therefor blocked these files". This without giving me the option to override,
    since the files are only POSSIBLY unsafe. It looks to me (since I have this
    vista only since yesterday) that microsoft still hasn't lost their "we know
    what's best for you and thus stop complaining" attitude.

    Can anyone tell me how to override this problem and be able to handle these
    files in explorer (and later on in internet explorer of course)?

  3. Right-click the file, select Properties, then at the bottom of the
    properties dialog click the "Unblock" button. Hit Apply, then OK.
