Trying to work on a Vista machine without a admin account login and ran into this little scenario.
ccsetup519.exe-1st-download.JPGImage Enlarger


As you can see this is the ccsetup519.exe, and I am sure everyone has installed CCleaner, at one time. This was happening for all installers that i was trying to run. Pay attention to security and the unblock tab by opening the properties of the ccsetup519.
At this point their are two options, unblock the installer by using the unblock tab, or login with password as administrator. Since this machine was running Vista Ultimate I had one more option.ccsetup519.exe-2nd-download.JPGImage Enlarger

As you can see the security and unblock tab is gone from this second ccsetup519 download and all other downloads. This is accomplished by running gpedit.msc and navigating to USER CONFIGURATION>ADMINISTRATIVE TEMPLATES>WINDOWS COMPONENTS>ATTACHMENT MANAGER and enabling "Do not preserve zone information in the file attachments". It would be wise to disable this function after work on the machine has been completed.

so the computer has an admin account, which no one knows the password to, and a standard user account?

No, the admin password was removed so the PC could be updated, if I downloaded a file to the PC then Vista would block the installation. The sad thing about this PC update has been Vista SP2, I did get it to update to Vista SP1, but the SP2 update channel just runs and runs runs etc.
