Windows security error "These files might be harmful to your computer"

When we copy files from our local computers (workstations) to a server share we get the message:

"These files might be harmful to your computer
Your Internet security settings suggest that one or more files may be harmful. Do you want to use it anyway?"

It seems the only way to get rid of the message is add the domain name to the Trusted Sites for the Intranet zone such as:

 file://*.domain.local

Is this the correct way to  do it or is there a more orthodox procedure?  This problem does not seem to be a problem on other networks I have seen but on this one, yes.

Thank you!
