IE7 - Internet zone / Trusted zone.

    Hello,

    I successfully added some websites from the Internet zone to Trusted zone.
    When accessing the added site a green checkmark at the bottom of the page
    indicates that this site is in the Trusted zone..

    There are however a couple of websites which don't seem to add to the
    Trusted zone.

    I managed to have the websites listed in the Trusted Website box but when
    accessing the website the Internet icon is displayed instead of the
    (expected) Trusted site icon.

    When trying again to add to the Trusted zone a prompt pops-up: "The site you
    specified already exists in the Internet zone. Would you like to move it in
    the Trusted sites zone?"

    Well, the site was definitely in the Trusted zone already which makes the
    text of the prompt meaningless. I okayed it anyway but no luck. The site(s)
    remain in the Internet zone despite adding them to the Trusted zone.

    The Websites start either with http://www..., https//www..., http://*. or
    https://*.

    I kindly request assistance to rectify this situation.

    TIA................Mel.

    G'day Mel Bourne, this is Sid Knee here,

    You did not mention your IE version, but if you have version 7 and are using
    the IE5 Powertoys Addons to add sites to your Trusted or Restricted Zones,
    stop using this utility as there are known conflicts with these utilities
    and version 7 of IE (The Add to Restricted utility does not work properly in
    v7)

    Your issue though appears to be something else... As well as Internet Zones
    for the current user of a computer there are also Zone entries which are
    applied on the local machine key, which if you are using a work computer
    could have been installed by your system administrator, or could have been
    installed by a download that you yourself installed. These Sites do not
    appear in the users Internet Options>Security>Zones>Sites list and are
    administered by Group Policy.

    The registry key is

    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\windows\CurrentVersion\Internet
    Settings\ZoneMap\Domains

    Look for the site that you are having problem with under that key and delete
    it. You will then be able to add/change that site in your user settings for
    IE.

    Do not do this if this is your work computer as you may be in breach of your
    employment t&c. Contact your systems administrators for their
    assistance/permissions.

    Regards.

    Thanks for responding matey.

    The IE version is indicated on the subject line of my original post.

    When adding websites to the Trusted zone, I either double-click on the
    Internet icon on the bottom of the website or use Tools | Internet
    Options...

    The computer I am using is a stand-alone pc for home use and am the
    administrator.

    I don't quite understand the meaning:
    "Look for the site that you are having problem with **under that key and
    delete it**. You will then be able to add/change that site in your user
    settings for IE."

    I don't seem to find keys in relation to the site(s) that are causing the
    problem(s) and I wouldn't know which key belong to a particular website.

    I was able to burrow down in
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\windows\CurrentVersion\Internet
    Settings\ZoneMap\Domains
    and found:

    'Domains' folder contains:
    Name: (Default), Type: REG_SZ

    'msnn.com' folder contains:
    Name: (Default), Type: REG_SZ, Data: (value not set)

    'related' folder contains:
    Name:(Default), Type: REG_SZ, Data: (value not set)
    Name: http, Type: REG_DWORD, Data: 0x00000004(4)

    'ProtocolDefaults' folder contains:
    Name: (Default), Type: REG_SZ
    Name: @ivt, Type: REG_DWORD, Data: 0x00000001(1)
