IE 7 warnings

Okay, so I thought I could actually turn off all of the annoying MS IE 7.0 warning messages because they can't apparently take care of security themselves...I disabled everything in IE 7 as far as security and I still get "Your current security settings put you at risk...."  I am a web developer and have files on my C drive that I need to open directly by a double-click.  Of couse, IE has popup that terrible message with warnings and a cacophonous "pop-up" sound everytime I open one of those files.  How can I disable that and any other messages for good that will popup after I take care of this one?

You sure this is IE7 and not an antivirus/spyware/security app you have running? Help explain more in detail what kind of file it's accessing and from where is it accessing it.
If you dont mind editing these local files a tad, try adding this line immediately after the doctype for each file:

<!-- saved from url=(0014)about:internet -->

This is call a "Mark of The Web" and IE will allow better filesystem access when a valid mark is present.
