    It's incessant. It won't stop. Seems to be a permanent flub-up. Can anyone here help me with completely disabling all Open Confirmation dialogs?

    Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

    I have already added the following script to the registry:
    ICACLS "%programdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs" /Setintegritylevel (OI)(CI)Medium
    ICACLS "%userprofile%\Favorites\Links" /Setintegritylevel (OI)(CI)Medium
    ICACLS "%userprofile%\Desktop" /Setintegritylevel (OI)(CI)Medium
    ICACLS "%system%" /Setintegritylevel (OI)(CI)Medium
    ICACLS "%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch" /Setintegritylevel (OI)(CI)Medium
    ICACLS "%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User pinned\Taskbar" /Setintegritylevel (OI)(CI)Medium

    Didn't work.
    Then I tried adding this to the registry:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Associations]
    "LowRiskFileTypes"=".avi;.bat;.cmd;.exe;.htm;.html;.lnk;.mpg;.mpeg;.mov;.mp3;.mp4;.mkv;.msi;.m3u;.rar;.reg;.txt;.vbs;.wav;.zip;.mmc;.7z"

    Still nada.
    UAC is off.
    Local Intranet security level (in IE's Internet Properties) is now set to low.

    But it still won't stop. I'm about to pull what little hair I have left, out. Can someone kill these idiotic confirmations for me?

    Tired of this!.PNG

    So what is the rest of the path?
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\StartMenu\Programs...

    Once you find it, simple remove this shortcut
    Administrative Tools\Computer Management

    which is in the unknown program.

    That's actually from right-clicking the Computer icon on the desktop, and choosing Manage.

    Run a check disk. You shouldn't have to use icacls to reset integrity levels.
