Windows 7 - Security warning associated with Avira startup file

I'm experimenting with Avira antivirus.  Unfortunately, I can't get Windows 7 to trust the avgnt.exe file associated with Avira.  I get the prompt shown below each time Windows boots.  Note the check box at the bottom of the form, "Always ask before opening this file."  Un-checking that box does me no good.  Suggestions?

Is it happening to all programs that you run or only this one? Do you want to disable it for all executable files? If so, see here for a registry edit to make the changes. Make sure you make a backup of your registry or create a restore point prior to doing this.

The problem is the file came from an untrusted zone so it is marked as such and prompts you to run it.

If you truly trust this file just open Windows Explorer and navigate to C:\Program Files\Avira\AntiVir Desktop\ directory, right click avgnt.exe and select properties and click Unblock on the General Tab (see screenshot).
