I have found that if you add the mapped drive letter to the trusted
sites list, it prevents the security warning.  The resultant format of
the entry is:
file://Server.FQDN (assuming you used a fully qualified DNS name when
mapping the drive).  An IP address would appear if it were mapped via
IP.
 
No more prompts.  These are stored in
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet
Settings\ZoneMap\Domains under the root domain name.  If an IP address
were used, it is store under Ranges\Range#, instead of Domains

        I am trying to setup a few sites and unc paths to be trusted by
computers in my domain.
         
        The frustration is, where I am making the changes, does not seem
to have an effect.
         
        I am trying to not have the dreaded Open File - Security warning
pop up when my staff tries to install things from my remote NAS file
server
         
        What is wierd, is I use folder redirection which points to the
same NAS, and when users run the same executables, the ydon't get the
Open File warning.
         
        But if they run that same eexcutable from a mapped drive to a
different folder on the file server, the Open File Warning box pops up.
         
        Another annoying things, is if i set the site to zone assignment
GP settings, the users are unable to add sites because it is greyed out.
I try to disable or reverse the policy, and I am still unable ..
         
        Very frustrating at this point.
         
        I am thinking, I am in the wrong section of group Policy
