1) This message should be a question instead to make things easier, "Do you want to run this program?". What's the point of making the user have to go into the properties and make it executable before running it? It's just more work and annoyance. It's at the point where you may as well just make it like Windows Vista/7, as the whole Linux not setting execute bit after copies accomplishes the exact same thing but Windows deals with it in a more elegant way for users.

2) At the very least, this behavior needs to be prevented for CD-Rs as they are not modifiable.
