Open File Security Warning – Enable or Disable

Have you seen the below message appearing on your Citrix servers and just wished you could turned that OFF. I did, not once but quite a few times that I have decided to document it so that I can quickly revisit the page when I deploy Citrix next time.

The annoying error looks like the below and it is plain ugly to say the least.



I tried a few things that Internet had to offer but nothing worked for me until I tried a combination of the below 2 GPOs




The GPOs could be found here

User Configuration - Administrative Templates - Windows Components - Internet Explorer - Internet Control Panel - Security Page
  • Intranet Sites: Include all local (intranet) sites not listed in other zones
  • Intranet Sites: Include all network paths (UNCs)


The popup should now go away!
