Batch file examples
💾 Name Version Description OS (1) Last modified Remarks
💾 UnBlock.bat 1.00 Modify downloaded files' Zone Identifier to mark them as safe XP 2007-06-17 Based on an article in Windows Scripting Solutions by Bill Stewart.
More info on Zone Identifiers in MS Knowledge Base articles 883260, 889815 and 105763.

Disclaimer: By manually marking a file safe you effectively disable the zone checking security mechanism for that file.
This is absolutely NOT recommended!!!
Use this batch file entirely at your own risk.
