    This "blocking" feature is such an annoyance. It causes more problems than it's worth, especially for software developers.

    You can use this PowerShell command to unblock all files in a given directory:
    Code:
    Get-ChildItem -recurse {folder path} | Unblock-File -Verbose
    Replace {folder path} with something like C:\Temp or whatever folder you want. I find this useful when I'm not sure if something is blocked in a given directory.

    It's been there ever since the day of Windows 7.

    One time, I installed the Synaptics Touchpad Driver, then upon every reboot, I would get a popup saying "Are you sure you want to run this file or not?" very annoying! So I researched more about this and came to know that is because I didn't unblock the driver ZIP file so all the files that did get installed are now BLOCKED! Great! Good luck for me finding them!

    And it's not like it's a feature to really protect you from anything, it's just annoying! Most users will just click yes anyway to run the file, Windows does NOT know if a file is harmful or not! that's what an Antivirus is for!
