For the details:

The indicator telling that this file was retrieved from the Internet is represented by an alternate data stream (ADS) in the file, named Zone.Identifier. Some software saves only the "ZoneId" in this stream, others save the orgin URL as well.

In a script, you can remove all ASDs from a file using the SysInternals "streams" utility. Or you can use a recent version of PowerShell, which allows you to remove a selected ADS without affecting others.

(I provided this hint, as a solution to issues reported by our customers, to one of our developers who has been set to putting together a tool file for our Windows customers. He sneered back (in an email, so this is a direct quote): "I am fortunately not a windows developer, I hope I will never have to claim that". Maybe he is the wrong man for the job...)
