      I keep getting response windows that say “The publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software?” when I try to run many of my programs – especially those I have written in Visual C++ 6. Is there a way to turn these warnings off?

      Try this:

      1. Click Start -> Run and enter gpedit.msc
      2. Expand User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Attachment Manager
      3. Open Inclusion list for moderate risk file types and add *.exe
      4. Now try again to run your executables! 🙂

      Thanks! It worked, even though the explanation given there makes it sound like maybe it belonged in the low risk section. I never would have looked under “Attachment Manager” to accomplish this!

      As atariguy mentioned I just added “.exe” to “Inclusion list for low risk file types” and it worked like charm.

      Thanks all!
