Windows XP - Disable "Open File - Security Warning" on Files Copied over Network

I hate the "Open File - Security Warning" dialog. Fuck up and let me copy my shit in peace.
To disable it,

1) Run gpedit.msc
2) Local Computer Policy -> User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Attachment Manager
3) Enable "Do not preserve zone information in file attachments"

The files you already have are going to keep annoying you.
Theres not much you can do about it unless you redownload it, or copy it to a drive thats Fat32 and then copy it back.

Disable annoying Novell broadcast messages

If you're at work and getting alot of annoying popups with the text "Message from server" and title "Novell Message Popup", then those are broadcasts from the Novell Server to all clients.

Right click on red N "Novell Services" icon in taskbar
Click on "Novell Client Properties"
Go to "Advanced Settings"
Select "Receive Broadcast Messages" from the list
Change "Setting" to "None"

I'm not sure if this actually works or not, but I havnt received any messages yet.
