SysInternals: Get rid of the Open File Security Warning

When you download files from the internet and then open the file, you may get a Warning message like this:

To get rid of that warning you can delete the stream information that is associated with that file. SysInternals has the tool to do that. Download it here.

Using Streams

Usage: streams [-s] [-d] <file or directory>
-sRecurse subdirectories.
-dDelete streams.
Streams takes wildcards e.g. 'streams *.txt'.

Example, using streams from the Pommand Prompt with Run as Administrator:
cd c:\Tools\SysInternals
streams -d autologon.exe
