    Everytime I download a newsgroup file (.nzb) Leopard tells me I have downloaded an application and am I sure I want to open it.

    The constant notifications are annoying, is there anyway to set up a rule so that i opens my newsreader straight away?

    The exact same thing happens to me (I use Unison as the client). It is annoying, and I haven't been able to fix it. But you're not alone.

    There's an AppleScript folder action out there that will watch your downloads folder (Or wherever you download to) for new files and will "bless" them for you to remove that notice by telling the Finder that the file is safe. Of course then when you finally do download an unsafe file, you'll be screwed.. though when has there ever really been an unsafe file on OS X?

    It gives me this dialog for LUA files even though they're opening in TextWrangler, which doesn't execute them, just views them. It's annoying. It even does it for MPEG-4 files sometimes.
