When running files from a local server you receive "Do you want to run this file?" or "The publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software?". These prompt can be disabled via the Internet Explorer security settings.

I've been trying to get rid of that Warning for a while now, it has been driving me nuts. I edit and move files all day long on the network so its happening to be all the time since them made me move to Win7. Thanks for saving my sanity smilies/grin.gif

neither worked for me running vbscripts from a mapped drive. the only way i could fix it was to go into group policy and make vbs a "low risk" file type under Attachment Manager. which is a terrible idea.
