Help! XP SP1 has made my computer into a wiener

Now, whenever you go to download an exe, doc, xls, or anything, really, you get this ridiculous warning message aimed at those with no common sense and you lose the ability to change the settings to "don't ask me this queston again".

Has anyone else noticed this yet and is there a workaround? I don't click on things I don't want ...

It's the same as before, just with the extra-long message on there. Before you would still get a window asking if you want to open, save, or cancel and if you want to be asked before opening. This is the same thing only it has a longer message.
