Disable the Windows prompt that asks you to confirm you want to open a file from an unknown publisher using this straightforward fix

Sometimes, when you are trying to open files you downloaded from various places, but that are not within the known publisher list of Microsoft, you can get a warning that asks you to confirm once more that you want to run the said file. This is because Windows is set to put a block status on certain data, a nuisance that can lead to incomplete or failed installations.

Are You Sure You Want to Run This File Registry Fix is a tweak that can help you address this small inconvenience by fixing the registry key responsible for this.

Could come in handy for installing drivers or apps that require Administrator rights

The idea behind this utility is to provide a convenient way to run installers that are commonly blocked by Windows. Generally speaking, you can also do that by accessing the Properties of the file and marking the Unblock option from the General tab. However, if you have several files to go through, it can become a tedious task.

According to the developer, this can be helpful in various situations, such as when you do not unblock an archive before decompressing, for instance. For this particular example, it means that all files extracted are going to be blocked and hence, can lead to failure to install or other errors.

A small tweak but allows you to fix the registry responsible for blocking apps from launching

It is worth mentioning that running an unknown file that you grabbed from a non-trusted website or forum is always a security risk. Therefore, the utility mainly addresses advanced users who are aware of the risk and know what file they are running on their system but are simply irritated with the Windows prompt.

Are You Sure You Want to Run This File Registry Fix not an application per se, but rather it is a registry fix that enables you to prevent Windows from prompting “Are you sure you want to run this file?” warning.
