    Default This File came from Another Computer and might be Blocked

    Sometimes I cannot open a file and in the file Properties window I see a message - This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer.

    What can I do? How do I access the file? Anyway to turn off the warning?

    You can turn off the warning via Registry EDitor or Group Policy Editor. But I suggest you keep the warning.

    To access the file, right click on the file and open Properties. Under the General tab, towards the bottom you will see classified under Security: This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer.

    Click on Unblock. Click Apply > OK. This should help.

    Check these for details:
    Windows has blocked access to this file. Unblock a File.
    Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file
