When I go to the favorites folder through Windows Explorer (C:\Users\[username]\Favorites), and then try dragging a Favorite file into one of the folders, I get the error "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?"


I can replicate the problem on two computers




I am using the DEFAULT security settings for Internet Explorer.
