Hi I have just taken over as a Network Administrator of a w2k Server environment, so please bear with me. I have a local intranet set up via Frontpage with various pages & hyperlinks to company documents stored on our server. Never had a problem before. Today i get a user runing W2000 ring me with Microsofts 'Some files can harm your computer. If the info below looks suspicious do not open or save this file' When i select the 'Open' option, the file does not open. No other users are getting this message & the affected user only started getting it a couple of weeks ago. The files are mostly .pdf files & the IP of the Server is listed as a trusted site. Can anyone shed any light on what may be causing this or advise me how to turn the warning off? Thanks Neville

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

A – one user has the problem, and no one else. Server is okay, content is okay, and other content opens okay.

B – What did that user do two weeks ago, install software, download a patch, what changed on that system? Most likely is an upgrade/patch that changed security level for IE and that page/application.

C – It may not be anything the user loaded, just changing Privacy or content rules in IE would cause the problem.

D – If other content is also failing, and certificates are in use, check that the user’s certificate has not expired.

Good luck.

    Thanks for your help. Turns out the user updated Adobe reader to Version 7, which as it turns out was the problem. Once i rolled back to Adobe 6 the problem disappeared.

    At the risk of seeming shallow - I'm inclined to agree with Howard. Bob
