Sick of that error message popping up whenever an app is opened for the first time on your machine?  Are your end users going crazy because of this?  Fear not, there is a way to suppress these warnings.  Tim Sutton has a post that explores exactly where these settings are stored and how to manipulate them.  He has written a helpful tool in python that makes modifying these settings extremely easy via a login script.  Check out the article here.
