From time to time, Win 7 will give me an error message that "These files might be harmful to your computer" and that "Your internet security settings suggest that one or more files may be harmful. Do you want to use it anyway?" when I try to move files.
I know quite well there's nothing wrong with these files. Today's problem in moving a folder was just a folder with three pictures of a dog and a photoshop file I created from one of them. It's complaining about moving several folders like this.
But here's the real oddity:
All of the help I've found this morning by Googling talks about this error message coming up when moving files across internet, LAN, etc. This is from one folder on my computer to another just down one level! There's no internet movement happening here!
I'm simply attempting to drag a folder in:
into another one at the same level folder one level lower:
so that I can divide everything in that folder called general into years of my work.
So all of it is right on my C drive. Any suggestions? This pops up intermittently and is quite frustrating.
Someone said to me that this problem sounds related to Internet Explorer or files downloaded from IE, but IE had nothing to do with the files in that folder.
They were paper photos (family shots) that my client scanned to me and sent to me in an email, whereupon I copied them onto the folder on that first path. Thanks!
