How to disable the Open File - Security Warning on Windows 7

Hi Experts,

  I have a windows 7 system and on the desktop I have a shortcut to a program that runs off the server an exe. Everytime I click on this program I get ths following error:

Open File - Security Warning
The publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software?
Name
Plublisher: Unkonwn Publisher
Type: Application
From::\\servername\program name\program.exe

How do i get this from coming up every single time I click on that program?

You can control it through "user account control" ... Not recommended though as this does add good protection.
Press the windows key
type "user account control"
Click "change user account control settings" move the slider to suit...

UAC slider to minimum is the only solution I know of looks like other people have felt your pain below...

The disadvantage of turning off UAC is that a any trojan or viral activity has admin access just something to bear in mind...
