Post 3+ Months Ago

Greetings all, I have a Win2k machine that I recently built to use as an entertainment machine in my livingroom. Since the machine will be using the TV as it's display, I figured it would be too difficult to see the icons on the desktop so I made an active desktops with some large readable icons that call .vbs scripts that in turn execute some shortcuts to the programs I want to use.

Now, on to my problem: That stupid security warning about the vbs files!
I want it to die and never come back.
I used to know a registry hack that would enable the local machine security zone in the security settings for IE where I could allow the vbs files to run freely, but I don't have it anymore.

Now before any of you start to wax apocalyptic about how it's not good to allow scripts to run, etc etc, I would like to point out that this machine will not have any access to the internet, and only limited access to the lan, so I'm willing to take the risk.

If anyone can post the registry hack to get the "Local Machine" to show up in the IE security settings, or any other tips, I'd much appreciate it.
