Users are prompted when opening image files (jpg's) that they can harm the computer.  I have previously added our intranet site to the Intranet Zone in IE but this message does not go away.  This message does not appear for .doc, .xls, .pdf, etc files.

Wow :)

Please could you share us more information about what is happening? Looks like you click a download link that contains a JPG file, then you get that popup???

I.E. normally open links to JPG files you click directly into itself... so I dont understand what you're doing I guess

Please tell us more

Kaddict,

I wish that was the solution.  I already checked that one out.  No love there.  As you can see with the attached image, no checkboxes are selected. (The same is true for JPG, JPEG, and JPE)

I also attached the action that produces this warning message.  It does this for any jpg file.

This bug looks more common on Windows ME than Windows XP...

What Windows service pack do you have (none, sp1, sp2, sp3)
also
What version of Internet Explorer ?  6/7/8 ?
