Documents downloaded from the internet/ email etc. are blocked. User has to download to desktop, right click and go to properties to unblock the file. Tried following the steps below to no avail.

Goal is to have this completely disabled for all files the user wishes to open.

It seems to be more of an issues of the file properties being set to blocked in windows 8 vs. Office 2013 settings.
