    I just upgraded my XPSP2 VM to IE7 (some of our internal products only worked on IE6).

    Now when I run a batch file which is located on my Mac (M: is mapped to \\.PSF\.Home\myStuff) , I get the prompt that suggests this file is not trustworthy, do I want to <Run> it or <Cancel> the request:

    Open File - Security Warning
    The publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software?
    name: boq.bat
    Publisher: Unknown
    Type MS-DOS Batch file
    from: M:\utils

    I tried the regular things that work with "normal" mapped drives, no joy:
    http://windowsxp.mvps.org/networkfile.htm

    Anyone have any suggestions so this batch file (and every other executables on my mapped drive), start without the prompt?

    When I do that, I get "That site is already in the Trusted sites zone.", however it is not in the list of "websites"

    1. start.Run (inetcpl.cpl)
    2. click <Security> tab
    3. click <Trusted Sites> icon
    4. click <Sites> button
    5. type "\\.PSF\.Home\myStuff" (also tried "\\.PSF\.Home")
    6. click <Add>
    7. get message above
