How to Unblock Multiple Files

1 Comment

I have been busy learning new technology around HTML 5, JavaScript, ASP.NET MVC, etc.  I find myself downloading sample code from the web to learn from.  Inevitable, I cannot get somethings to run due to the file being blocked.  Files downloaded from the web retain Internet Zone permission level and hence are “Blocked” by default on Windows 7 machines.

With code downloads, there can be LOTS of files.  There is not a built in way that i know of to unblock multiple files at once.   A couple of websites allowed me to easily batch unblock the downloaded files:
