Re: Turn off "Always ask before opening this file"
Thanks. That partially works. I run cmd as admin, cd to \Program Files\utl
and then run, say, autoruns.exe. The result: the program just runs, as in the
days of old. But no dialog pops up, so I can't clear the box. If I run
explorer from the administrative cmd session the dialog does pop up, but I
still can't make the change stick. My account has full control of the folder.
So running GUI apps from an admin cmd line will bypass the questions, but
still provides no way to remove the dialog when running from explorer. There
must be a way to do this, since I don't have this problem with Word
(preinstalled) or Adobe reader 8 (Installed by me).
If I right click on autoruns.exe from explorer there is an option to
"unblock" the file. If I click unblock and apply the UI updates as though "it
worked", but it doesn't. Right clicking again shows the same "unblock"
status. And this is on an instance of explorer run from the administrative
cmd line with runas using my account, which is an admin account with full
control of the folder.
So I still don't know how to end the unwanted grilling when I run a
"sysinternals" program from explorer. We must be missing something. Any ideas?
