    Could other settings affect this?
    Yeah, this policy is only in "Computer configuration" in gpedit.

    I tested with Firefox in 8.1, and I still got the message as well. Do you still get the message with any other program?

    Hm, interestingly no, when installing Opera or Chrome I didn't get the notification.

    Interesting, that seems that Firefox or a program may be able to override it.

    Good One!

    Thanks Brink

    On my system HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer did not exist. However, I downloaded and ran your .reg file, and it kindly added Explorer to Windows. Hopefully the message will now be permanently dead.

    Hello Jon,

    Yeah, the policy is not in the registry by default. Once added by the .reg files, it should stop them for you.
