Disable Windows Share Drag and Drop Confirmation caused by IE 7 on XP SP3


 / Published in: Windows Registry

Internet Explorer 7 under Windows XP Service Pack 3 has the Windows Registry "Reserved Value" 180D set that was not set before, which can cause a "Do you want to move or copy files from this zone?" prompt on moves or copies between Windows shares if they are incorrectly detected as being part of the Internet Zone. The registry solution in this snippet will disable this confirmation message.
