Hi Guys,

Everytime I download something from my File Server into this computer, I get a warning screen (attached). How do I get rid of this warning popup? It only started doing this when I reinstalled XpHome into this computer yesterday.

Thanks in advance.

There are settings for internet and LAN under security. You can put the server in the trusted zone then when you get the popup the check box should not be grayed out and you can tell it not to ask anymore, or just tell security to ignore file transfers from the FTP.

The warnings are a good thing, even from your file server. Didn't you have a bunch of spyware, nasties, etc the other day...........

Hi J79ZLR, LeeJend

That Hijack log was from my friends computer. Good memory, J.

Before the reinstall of XPhome last night, I never had such a warning popup during transfer of files/folders from the Server.

I would still like to know how to disable this popup. That checkmark is greyed out.

Hi Guys,

Well, I figured out why I am getting this popup. When I was in the Drive-Mapping properties, I was choosing the drives from "My Network Places" instead of choosing them from the "Microsoft Windows Network". I have since disconnected them, and re-mapped them by choosing them from within my in-home network. It was actually Aussie's post that got my thinking about how I mapped them.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
