Open file security warning when opening links/lnk files
Posted on 2013-01-25
I am trying to disable open file security waning for users through GPO. When they open a link they get a open file security warning, which they are not too happy about. I have done the following changes in GPO, and seen them in effect on my testuser through rsop.msc, but the open file security warning still prevails on the users terminal servers running server 2008.
"User Configuration" -> "Windows Settings" -> "Internet Explorer Maintenance" -> "Security". Right click "Security Zones and Content ratings" -> "Properties". -> "Modify settings", -> "Local intranet" -> "Sites". -> "Advanced..." - added *.customerdomain.local and servername to which the link links to(links over a unc path).
I also changed "Do not preserve zone information in file attachments" in Default domain policy on user configuration to enabled and modified "Inclusion list for low file types" to incude .lnk and various other file types.
By Googling this problem, it seems that this should be the solution. But it is not in this case. Any ideas?
