Recently I was experimenting with Linux (now over until I get access to DSL) and in the process I lost the warning dialogue when I double clicked on installation programs and I'd like to restore it if possible. I am running XP Home Edition SP3 and Internet Explorer 8.
During this time I reset my Internet Options to default settings.
I don't know if I lost the warning dialogue from that or from using the recovery console to get rid of the Grub bootloader during which I ran the fixmbr and fixboot commands.
I liked the little bit of added security of having to tell the OS that I'm intentionally installing something and I'd like to get back the warning when double clicking installation programs if possible.
I hope I've described the problem sufficiently to receive help, but if not I'll gladly try to clarify.
Thanks for any help and suggestions you may provide.
