Security warnings with mp3?

I have a bunch of mp3s on my PC. Certain ones, I get an open file security warning - "Do
you want to open this file? ... unknown publisher"

I can disable it for one particular file, by unchecking the "always ask before opening
this file" box, but with lots of mp3s that do this, it gets annoying.
Is there a way of just disabling this for mp3s?
Obviously, I don't want to disable for executables, etc, but mp3s is going a bit too far.

Any help would really be appreciated... thanks!!!

If you use Limewire, Trojans will sometimes disguise themselves as mp3s

Thanks for the reply!
I don't use Limewire, besides my player won't run any script, and my security apps are
tight.
I did figure it out using Group Policy. There's a setting in User Config, Admin
templates, Attachment Manager, to set a list of low-risk extensions.
