From the original link:

The ICA file security configuration is saved in the webica.ini file contained inside the following directory:

<root directory>\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\ICAClient

Note: With version 10.1 of the Presentation Server Client or later, the webica.ini file is stored in the user profile directory.

Open the webica.ini file and change the value GlobalSecurityAccess to 405.

The user can always change these settings: when he has a session open, right-click the Citrix connection icon in the tray, open the Connection Center, select the server in the left pane, click the button "File Security", and there's the dialog again.
