If you are attempting to extend a disk volume and get the following error:

Here’s how you fix it!

All you have to do is right click on Disk Management and select Rescan Disks. After you do that, then you will be able to extend the volume!

Remove the Open File Security Warning in XP, Vista, and Windows 7

February 20th, 2009 35 comments

Every single time you download a program and try to run it, that stupid pop-up comes up and adds a whole extra click. The pop-up looks like this:

"Open File - Security Warning" - "The publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software?" YES I'M SURE DAMNIT!

"Open File - Security Warning" - "The publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software?" YES I'M SURE DAMNIT!

You can remove this in any Microsoft OS that is XP or later with the same steps. How do I remove this you ask? Like so:

1. Click Start, Run (or Windows+R) and type gpedit.msc

GPEdit.msc


2. Navigate to User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Attachment Manager
then double click “Inclusion list for low file types” on the right pane

Group Policy

 

3. Select Enabled and enter in the file extensions you want to allow, including the preceding period and separated with a semicolon

.exe;.msi;.cmd;.bat;.vbs;

Inclusion list for low file types

Hit OK, exit out of your Group Policy window, and run your newly downloaded spyware infested program, free of the annoying “security” pop-up!
