If I've added my SharePoint site to the 'Local Intranet' zone I get the 'Some files contain viruses that can be harmful...' warning every time I click on a file.

If I've added my SharePoint site as a 'Trusted Site' I am asked for my credentials every time I go to the site even if I have the box checked to save my credentials.

Is there not something that can be done to prevent both of these scenarios at the same time?
