Adding trusted Sites for all users

Q: Adding trusted Sites for all users

Without GPOs is there a way I can add trusted sites to all users. I know using the HKCU I can add the site information, but when I do the same under HKLM the entry is there but it doesn't appear in IE under trusted sites.
I'm running XP SP2/3 and IE7 I had wanted to write a script I could deploy via SCCM that would effect all users, I'd rather not do something with every user that logs on.
So I have the following, but it doesn't appear under Trusted Sites
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\mytest.org]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\mytest.org\pacs]

Preferred Solution: Adding trusted Sites for all users

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Adding trusted Sites for all users

Try to add these four keys.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\mytest.org]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\mytest.org\pacs]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\EscDomains\mytest.org]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\EscDomains\mytest.org\pacs]
You can use a VB Script

   I had raised this question in Microsoft communities
and they have asked me to repost the question at this forum.  Hence reposting my question below

We develop applications that are installed on a windows 7 system. Our application has a webpage hosted in IIS. 

As an example lets say the system on which we have installed our application has hostname
A and IP "".  System A
has IIS installed.  SSL option is enabled.  As part of our application we host a home page on this system
Now in the home page of system A I have displayed URLs which correspond to pages from another system(Example href-> 
Let us name this second system with host name B and IP "". System
B on which its home page is hosted does not have SSL enabled. 

When I click on the system B's URL in system A home page it displays a warning "Only secure content is displayed" which is in accordance since we are navigating away from the secure site(System
A's home page).
So now the requirement for us is to add the system B's home page as a trusted site as part of internet settings on system
A and to enable the mixed mode.  I am already aware of the manual setting in the... Read more

I have been trying to add one of our servers tot the trusted sites in IE8 but with no prevail.

We have a program thats piggybacks on IE so we have to allow the use of ActivieX.
When I try to add the site it gives me the "Must have HTTPS:// prefix.
I have unchecked the box that says it is required and even try adding the site as an Administrator but no luck.

On a second note when I try to Change the home page to our company Intranet page it will not change. After I change it and click apply I then hit the home page.

This is happening on Windows 7 machines.

A:Adding to trusted sites

Did you uncheck "requires server verification"? It looks like you did the IE8 version of that, but afterwards did you re-look at all the security settings, particularly involving scripting and ActiveX? Outside of IE did you also check the way you set up your intranet to see what restrictions might be causing both problems?

Is there a way that I can make all of my computers have the same Trusted Sites when they log in? I am running Windows 7 Enterprise and use IE8.

Read other answers

IE 7 and IE 8
You can add URL's to Trusted sites - but after accepting, when opening the list again the new site is gone !
The problem appear to be there only AFTER one of our GPO's setting these trusted sites via a .reg file, has run.
The GPO is calling a .cmd file executing the .reg file
We don't use setting trusted sites via the policy "site to zone assignment list", because this totally blocked (dimmed out) the buttons for adding trusted sites i IE.
This Microsoft KB describes the same problem:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307907 But we don't use IEAK.
Any ideas ?

Whenever I try to add *.amazonaws.com to the Trusted Sites list, I get the message that it's an invalid wildcard sequence. If I add the site in GPO and do a gpupdate, then I get a message this message:
Windows failed to apply the Internet Explorer Zonemapping settings. Internet Explorer Zonemapping settings might have its own log file. Please click on the "More information link"

It's the same as this issue: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/forum/all/cannot-add-amazonawscom-to-trusted-sites-in/377c17b7-94c6-4171-92bb-fe7283a98d7f
I ran process monitor to see why this is happening and I can't figure it out. Anyone know the reason why I am getting an invalid wildcard sequence even though it is a valid url?
I have only tested this on Windows 10 1703 and 1809.

I have the newest Internet Explorer and im using Vista. I play a game called Travian and I want to use a 'graffic pack' which loads from my PC.

I had to add the site to my 'trusted sites' for it to work, and it does now.

The only thing is that when I open the site it opens a new IE and loads it in there. As it is the only site in my trusted sites I cant load any other sites with that IE, so I need to go to a different one if that makes sence.

How can I make it so that my trusted sites open with my non-tusted sites (using tabs)?

A:Solved: How can I make trusted sites and normal sites open together?

Set your tab preferences in IE, otherwise, try Firefox and set those tab preferences.

I have my Firefox preferences for Tabs set to never open in a new window, and always open at least one tab:
New pages should be opened in: a new tab rather than a new window
Always show the tab bar
When I open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately
Warn me when closing multiple tabs
Warn me when opening multiple tabs might slow down Firefox

On Windows 7 with Internet Explorer 9 in a domain environment I have been trying to figure out why users can't add to trusted sites. Spending hours on this. I changed the setting in "Site to Zone assignment list" to disabled and was able to add a site, or so I thought. I add a site, close the dialog and go back in and then ALL the entries in the list have disappeared.

I hate troubleshooting this, I hope someone can expalin this (without telling me to "Search"). I have come across MANY issues similar but have yet to find a solution.

HELP! & Not the Beatles....another IT guy added a trusted site Internet Options/Security/Trusted Sites with a weird symbol before it. It does not have https:// it's like *. What it is?

A:Trusted Sites

What is the domain of the site? The "*" just means any prefix for a URL on that site would be trusted. I don't like adding entries there as it basically gives them permission to bypass security measures on your computer. This is sometimes done for troubleshooting purposes but I wouldn't leave it that way.

I have tried and tried to figure this out and just cant get it.

We remotely connect to sites using remotely anywhere along with tunnelier.

So we login with tunnelier to the server, then tunnelier gives us our port number, and to connect to the site, we put http://localhost:11233 in our browser.

This all works great, except we get the certificate error in IE.

What i would like to know is how to add localhost to the trusted sites list, so that no matter what the port number is, here 11233, we wont get the certificate error where we are having to click continue to website.

Anyone know how to do this?

Regardless of the answer I select (yes or no), this message appears every time and it is getting annoying. How do I fix this problem?

A:Trusted Sites List

Copy your link (http://wwwp.musicmatch.com/) into the buffer.

Go to "Start > Settings > Control Panel > Internet Options > Security > Trusted Sites > Sites". Paste your link in the upper window and click "add".

It may "choke" on your link because it wants a secure connection. Add an "s" to the "https:...". Maybe that will work. Maybe that is why it hasn't been working in the past.

If there is already a similar link in there, delete it.

See if that helps.

A:http://*. in trusted sites ?

Welcome to TSF.

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should not have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that Display the contents of System Folders' is checked. Windows XP's search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that Search system folders, Search hidden files and folders, and Search subfolders are checked.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Turn off system restore by right clicking on My Computer and go to Properties->System Restore and check the box for Turn off System Restore. Click Apply and then OK. Restart your computer. After we are finished with your log file and verified that it's clean, you may turn it back on and create a new restore point.

If you have a fast internet connection (... Read more

Not sure if this is the right place to post this question, but as its related to IE I am putting this here
What difference does it make whether or not a website is added to the trusted Sites list. The reason I ask is some of the icons on a website do not show up when not in the trusted sites list and I cannot figure out which setting I can change to make this
work without adding this to the trusted sites list.

This is my AD structure-
My Root domain is = company.local
under root domain, Parent domain is = us.company.local
Under parent domain, there are three domains -
first domain = abc.us.company.local
second domain = xyz.us.company.local
third domain = pqr.us.company.local
two way trust is there between all above three domains. means I can search objects/resources from any domain.

My target OU (group) is "CN=DL_TEST_SCRIPT_CRC,OU=Groups,OU=WCL,DC=abc,DC=us,DC=company,DC=local" which is in abc.us.company.local domain.

My requirement is - Read the users from users.txt (total 1200 users) file. Out of 1200 users, few users are in abc.us.company.local, few are in xyz.us.company.local &
remaining are in pqr.us.company.local domain.
I am running this script from DC which is in abc.us.company.local. This script should search the users in all three domains & add them to the DL_TEST_SCRIPT_CRC group.
but problem is script is adding all the users to the group only from abc.us.company.local. Users from other two domains are not getting added to the group.
Users are located in multiple OUs and could reside in abc.us.comapny.local/xyz.us.company.local
/pqr.us.company.local as well.
Input file users.txt contains only user name in the following format:
so on.....

Can anyone pls help?

I have an issue issue with IE11 on Windows 10.
The trusted sites are pushed out via a domain-based GPO, the ZoneMap registry entries are populated correctly on Windows 10 in
Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\xxxxxxx

However the sites are not listed in Trusted Sites zone via IE (Tools | Internet Options | Trusted sites | Sites) and therefore the zone security settings are NOT applied. 

The existing GPO to apply IE security/site to zone assignment works fine on Windows 7 and previous Windows 10 versions with IE 11

Logging into ebay sends me to one of two pages. The first gives a list of options as to where to go next. The other says my browser security settings dont allow redirect and to click a link to take me to the correct page.

In both cases NON of the links work. If I right click a link, copy the shortcut and paste into the address bar, I go to where I expected.

This also happened on a virgin wines website - I login to my account details, but non of the links work.

I am running Ad-aware and Spybot - nothing found.

This has just stared happening... but only on ONE of the two users logins on this computer running windows XP and IE6.

I am also unable to access the "trusted sites" in options - the custom and sites buttons are greyed out!!

Any ideas out there???

Okay, I am using Internet Explorer 6.0 mainly but there are other versions in our environment as well. Let me preface this by saying I know how to add a trusted site. What I need to know is how to mass deploy 3 trusted sites to multiple built PC's. Where does the PC indicate where the trusted sites for that PC are. Is this in an INI? Is it in the registry?

Let say I have http://Ilikecheese.com http://Idontlikecheese.com and http://Ilikebutdontwantcheese.com

I don't want to go through a 5 minute scenario at each PC (in many different locations so I would have to drive all over) adding these all in. Or worse yet a 15 minute over the phone conversation and ensuring they get the URL typed in right and so fourth. It would be much easier to send out a reg file for the people to click on or to just push a file to their PC's.

Please note all of these PC's do not have trusted sites setup so I don't have to worry about current preservation. Also I want this trusted site to be there no matter who logs onto the machine.

Anyone with any ideas on how trusted sites works mainly with I.E. 6.0 but if they want to point me to I.E. 5.0 and 4.0 stuff too that would work. Thanks in advance.

About a year ago I had CWS come into my system attached to a freeware program. It was present and detected by the various spyware removal programs used in this forum until I discovered the CWS was embedded in the freeware program called Index.Dat Viewer. I removed the Index.Dat Viewer program and then ran scans with HijackThis, CWShredder, Ad-aware, Spybot S&D to assure that CWS was indeed gone and I also have SpywareBlaster protection running. I then ran JV16 Power Tools and the scan came up with about 250 Registry entries related to CWS, I deleted all the entries.

I regularly do scans with Ad-aware, Spybot S&D, HijackThis and CWShredder. None of these scans have come up with any CWS entries since my problem of a year ago.

Today I did a scan with a Spyware removal program called "pcOrion". It's one of those free to scan buy to remove deals except this program will list the Registry key of the entries it finds. It found CWS, an Exploit and IETray. I was concerned with the CWS and decided to run Ad-aware and then Spybot S&D to see if they would also find the CWS. Neither program found the CWS.

I then went into the Registry key that was given by the pcOrion scan which was: HKEY_Current_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains

This key is the Trusted Sites Domains and it had approximately 200-300 entries of CWS, Adult XXX, BonziBuddy and every other scum domain I've ever seen before.
