Unblock is to manually trust a file/remote at locations before you can open them.

This is normal behaviour, app.exe is blocked because its source is untrusted.
RDP can sometime contribute to this as Windows thinks the file is coming from an untrusted source when actually it's the RDP host.
Really need to know more about what you're trying to do to find a solution.  You can globally disable the warning but that has a significant affect on the security of the system.  If you're only dealing with single applications (eg Office) you can change the level of protection for files. As I said above, if this is an app you have created you can digitally sign it and install its certificate on the RDP machine.
There are lots of options

1. Go into internet options, through control panel or IE.

2. Set the "Launching Applications and Unsafe Files" option to enabled.

This will give you a retarded bar in IE that says your security settings are unsecure or something.

To get rid of it:

1. Start>Run>gpedit.msc>Enter

2. Under Administrative Templates>Windows Components>Internet Explorer set the "Turn Off the security settings check feature" to enabled.

If you don't have Internet Explorer under windows components:

1.  right click Administrative Templates and click "Add/Remove Templates"

2. Click Add button

3. Navigate to "C:\WINDOWS\system32\GroupPolicy\ADM\"

4. Hold shift and highlight all the files that start with "inet"

It is not a firewall setting.

It is a take it or leave it option.

If you disable the warning, you will not see any blocking but you are at risk.

If you do not disable the warning, it is troublesome but you are not at risk.

No such option as it is a setting on local group policy. Just take it or leave it.

The risk is any malware will run on its own without your knowledge or approval.

There is no automatic way to do unblock. Once you manually unblock a file, you do not need to unblock it again in the same computer.

If you are opening the file in remote computer, you need to change the local group policy of the remote computer.
