Ok, This keeps coming up everytime I try to DRAG a file out of a compressed zip folder. Not when I copy/paste. Not with RAR, 7zip.

It used to look like this before I upgraded to the Internet Explorer 8.

I look this up and everything I find keeps telling me to do THIS:

That just doesn't work. Thats the frustrating part. They all say the same thing.

My downloaded files all say this:

When I unblock them, the problem goes away, but only for that file.

This problem happens regardless of whether I download with explorer, firefox, google chrome.

I tried about everthing I could think of. I tried Eusing free registry cleaner. Nothing works. This isnt the biggest problem in the world but it really really bothers me that I cant fix it. :|

My setting is to "automatically detect" on the Local Intranet/Sites setting. You might try that.

I just reformatted and it still says that. Very disheartening. And I chose to format first before I reinstalled.

btw, hamluis, I tried that and it doesn't work. Maybe it has something to do with the router?

I just tried making my own zip folder and extracting one of my own files. It didn't do it. It appears it only does it with downloaded files, hence

The only thing is, this only happens with zipped files. Not winRAR nor 7zip.

I use a router...I don't see where that should make a difference.

^^ What I mean is that maybe some setting with the router (or computer) is thinking that certain things passing through it are "evil". I know that sounds stupid, but I don't have much to go on here.

I guess I should thank my lucky stars that this ONLY happens when I drag files out of zip folders and that it doesn't happen when I just choose extract or use 7zip, winRAR.

AFAIK...zip files are compressed, thus dragging a compressed file from such...should not make that file useful. That's why a special program is used to extract such, thus making it useful.

Once the file is extracted, it can then be treated like any other file.

That may not be the way that it is...just the way that I understand the use of archives.

An analogy...if you attempt to just drag files from compressed Windows archives on the XP CD...they must be expanded before they can be used in Windows.

Maybe someone has a better understanding, but that's the way that understand such.
