Hi,
I just re-installed IE and since then have been getting the
"Open File: Security Warning" messages for most programs
I try to run (local ones, NOT downloads).

I did disable this before, but have forgotten how to. Googling for
the answer only came up with how to disable this for files on a network
(by adding to zone) and when downloading files in IE.

Could anyone tell me where in the registry this can be disabled?

Regards,
VT

Oops,
I should add: I have Home Edition, so no access to gpedit.msc

In IE go to Tools, Internet Options, Advanced. Under Security clear the checkbox for "Check for signatures on downloaded programs."
