"Quickest way - but not convenient - drag to your machine and open there.

Technical way - Go to properties and see if you have an unblock button.

This is usually caused by a NTFS flag set from another machine.

I have no idea why other files work but for some reason, .CHM files are affected... I guess it is to do with the way it caches the HTML pages."

"Following 2 keys must be entered and then you can view CHM files on Windows 7:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\HTMLHelp\1.x\ItssRestrictions]

""MaxAllowedZone""=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\HTMLHelp\1.x\ItssRestrictions]

""UrlAllowList""=\\\\[server name]\\[share name]\\[path];file://\\\\[server name]\\[share name]\\[path];

Added by an anonymous user (name CB): Note that on a 64-bit Windows 7 you will need to include:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\HTMLHelp]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\HTMLHelp\1.x\ItssRestrictions]
""MaxAllowedZone""=dword:00000001"
