Since a win7 update a few weeks ago, every shortcut lnk, and I mean EVERY lnk, now requires intervention via the "Open File - Security Warning"
The message is always the same, Unknown Publisher, even for MS Word, SQL Server, etc. These are all locally run from drive C and I have admin rights.
If launch the exe directly from the explorer, everything runs without issue. It's just shortcuts that are having issues.
I am running Win7 64 Pro. Before the update that caused this, it was running fine. I had all the UAC ____ turned off and all was well.
This is more than just an inconvenience, it's turning my new system into a worthless brick.
How do I stop this nonsense without turning ALL security off as some have suggested?
