The Imposible to remove Windows Security Warning
Posted 06 July 2012 - 12:08 PM
My problem is that when I try to Copy or Paste something from a shared folder using drag and drop I get the "Windows Security Warning: Are you sure you want to copy or move files to this folder"
I have put the shares in local Intranet -> Advanced -> Sites and I have Unticked the "Automatically detect intanet network" and ticked the rest. If I use Right-Click copy then paste, No warning, if I use Ctrl +C and V no warning. its just dosent like drag and drop.
I also tried putting the address of the share in the Trusted Sites but that didnt work.
I also saw in one of ms's sites that I should add a ( * ) to the end of the address "file:\\192.168.1.50*" It then game me an warning about the address already being set in the Internet Zone, clicked ok and that didnt work ither.
There was mention about a hotfix on ms's site but it didnt manage to download it (cant remember the kb) :-(
I dont want to use any third party software because im setting it up for a netcafe.
Apparently a person here My link found a solution, but the blog that the link if pointed to dosent really exist :-(
There must be a solution, this is driving me insane!!!
Also this is my first post here and im glad to find a forum with a part dedicated to Windows XP x64 :-)

Did you even bother to read the post? Do you thing I havent heard about Google? do you think that my entire browser history dosent consist of entries of Google about my problem?
I posted because it is an unusual problem that, well, should not occur, and im sorry if I assumed that such a question would be welcome, clearly I was wrong. :-/

Second, what IE are you using? Explorer an IExplorer are intertwined, you know...
Edit - and last but not least, I believe the XP 64-bit is based upon Server 2003, so that may be part of the problem there.
I found another (potential) setting -
edit2 - BTW, that website link does exist - just accessed it in FireFox. And it is a reference to IE7. Better check ALL of your Security Settings...
(note - I have NoScript installed as well - the link attempts a "redirect" which I did not allow temporarily. The Redirect takes you away from that page. )

Anyway I found the answer, in this site :-) here Link
It want these registry entries that did the magic.
"Drag and drop or copy and paste files" is Enabled
"Access data sources across domains" is Enabled (not sure about this one but it poped up in a couple of forums)
And it doesn't seem to mind if the address put in the Local Intranet -> Sites is in the Server name or Ip address. (There was a mention of that being an issue)

Keep a cool head, dude! Long-time members will gladly help until you get "itchy" and you may be ignored afterward...
edit - isn't the "MSFN search facility" a wonderful thing?
edit2 - OMG! That's the "Restricted Zones"!!!
more on zone settings here -
and... the better (safer) solution appears to be further down in the link...
