Open File - Security Warning for programs on network shares

We have several website and application links stored on a Windows network share.  Recently when we experienced a security warning that "We can't verify who created this file.  Are you sure you want to run this file?".  I tried adding the server to the "intranet" zone and the share but it didn't change anything.  This appears to happen to all our users.   Can anyone suggest a fix that I can apply through group policy?

you can disable it via GPO by adding the below registry Key
 HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\yourdomain\file   DWORD   1

Interesting Fethi, is this normal behavior you think?  It would seem GPO would have a predefined setting for this but I see nothing.  I am always a little uncomfortable applying registry changes via GPO but if this is the only fix I will apply it.  Thank you for your contribution!
