Regarding SharePoint Document Library popup RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am using a document library having Full user permissions for content management (checkin/checkout, read/write etc). Upon clicking any document (using Internet Explorer 8.0), I always get following screen with message " How would you like to open this file ? Readonly or Edit "   

    But somehow in past few days now I am getting following popup message on the screen " Some files can harm your computer. If the file information looks suspicious or you do not fully trust the source, do not open the file. " from which I can't do anything. And upon clicking OK button I can only read document but cannot edit it. I have checked permissions and everything including document library settings but unable to solve it. 

    Any help in this regard will be appreciated...

  • Hi All,

    The problem has been successfully resolved after resetting and enabling addons in Internet Explorer 8.0.
