Preferred Solution: http://*. in trusted sites ?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

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 (broadband), run an online virus scan at TrendMicro. Just follow the instructions on the site to run the online scan. Otherwise, make sure your antivirus program has the latest definitions and run a full system scan.

Reboot into Safe Mode (hit F8 key until menu shows up). Make sure to close any open browsers. Go into HijackThis->Config->Misc. Tools->Open process manager. Select the following and click Kill process for each one if they are still listed (they shouldn't be - but double check it):


Run a scan in HijackThis. Check each of the following and hit 'Fix checked' (after checking them) if they still exist (make sure not to miss any):

Delete the following Files/Folders (delete folders if no filename is specified) according to their directory (if none, just do a search for them) and delete them if they exist:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\Norton Update.exe
C:\Documents and Settings\smusic\Application Data\urai.exe

Reboot into Normal Mode and run new HijackThis scan. If there were some entries that didn't show up in Safe Mode, you may check and fix those that appear now in normal mode (if you do that, make sure to run a new scan again). Save the log file and run KRC HijackThis Analyzer in the same folder to get the result.txt log. Just post the contents of the result.txt file in the forum.

Next download this file and unzip it.

Make a folder on the root drive C:\ and and unzip the files into it.

Now...run Cleanup and reboot/logoff when prompted. ON the reboot...boot directly to safe mode. YOU MUST be in safe mode to run this program.

Open the folder were you saved those files and click the rem.bat file and let it run. It will delete the files and remove the infection and then make a log of the files it finds. The log file will be C:\log.txt and bad1.txt

IE11 tel: Link does not work in trusted sites or intranet sites
If the site is in internet zone the link does work.

Any hints for a fix?

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.

Yes we use Group Policy.

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.

in IE 6.0 SP1 ANY site starting with http://
is displayed with the "trusted zone" icon.
any site starting with https:// is correctly put
into "internet zone".

just when explicitly adding to 'restricted' or 'internet'
or 'local intranet' zone it is recognized correctly.

i have in my complete registry
(HKCU, HKLM, HKU) cleaned the
internet settings/ZoneMap/Domains
(etc as described on various antivirus hompages)
now it should be clean.

before i had an "Troj/Small-AP" but that was cleaned
by hijackThis.
some more trojans have also been cleaned too,
but sorry,i have no log of that.

i have not found anything in the weg regarding
"trusted" and "internet" zone and why ANY site comes into
trusted zone.

has anybody an idea?

I am running Windows 2003 Server, SP2.

IE7 will not hold trusted sites. After you add a site, click OK to get back out to the browser, and refresh (or even exit, and re-start IE), the desired site is no longer listed in Trusted Sites.

I have added a site to my "trusted sites" list in Internet Explorer:
However I cannot get the site to load at all.
I keep getting the error message:
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage
I have tried over and over to find the problem.
I can get the site: http://www.bravenet.net to load, but most of the links on that site are to a bravenet.com site, including the contact us information.
I would ask them (Bravenet) to help me, but I cannot get to their help or contact files.
When I try to go from Google to bravenet.com I get an error box with the message:

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.

how can i delete the trusted site on my pc? should i do this?

Read other answers

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?

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.

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.

I would like to add webshots to my trusted sites. I have already tried *.webshots.com
It doesn't work. I remember once seeing 2 addresses that need to be added to the list
for webshots.
I don't remember them. I am a free member so I cannot
get direct help from webshots.


A:add webshots to trusted sites

I don't use IE do don't have to do this but webshots has lots of address and cookies.
I think it is www.webshots.com you need to login.

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?

I use CounterSpy to deal with my spyware problems but after their newest version
came out(V2) it boggs down my computer and some of my programs won't run unless I shut down the active protection first. I also had to shut down the active protection so I good get updates to my antivirus program.
Their support told me that it was my computer but I found out alot of people are having the same problem as well.
Is their any good, trusted sites to get reviews of spyware programs????
I did a search in Google but I don't whether or not to trust the sites.
I heard that sites can be faked to look like a legimate site so that you would buy
the program they recommend.

I was infected with spyware a few days ago so I ran Spybot, Ad-aware and CWShredder like I usually do and everything seems to be ok. The only problem is that whenever I go to a site on Internet Explorer, this little green check mark symbol appears in the bottom right-hand corner and it says "Trusted sites." I'm not sure what this means or if I have any spyware still on my computer. Here is my HijackThis log. Thank you for any help you can give me.

I have tried everything I can see on the forums to get acces to the trusted sites list to add another site.
The HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings only has a: Default REG-SZ Value not set, nothing else in that field. I obviously have admin rights and even started IE9 as admin. I used Local Group Policy Editor to check User config/Windows settings/Internet explorer Maintenance/Security and ensured that Do not customize ... is ticked. All to no avail.
Anybody can help with this, I would really appreciate. I cannot log on to my bank any more, as they have changed sites.

   I had raised this question in Microsoft communities

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

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

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???

The product is an e-learning course that is distributed on CD. It connects to a web site allowing the user to sign in online, but then is supposed to return to the CD to run through the content.

We have added the web site as a "Trusted Site" and that process works fine. The problem is that when we're on the web site and then try to access the local CD drive, the browser just doesn't respond. An example of the link would be:
[a href="D:\page.html"]Link[/a] ( where "D" is the CD drive and of course we're not using square brackets )

In our advanced internet settings we've enabled content to run from CD. The difference seems to be when you're already on a site to link back to the CD.

Also, this works fine on Win 2000, just not XP.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

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.

The problem:
Unwanted pop-ups that re-direct me to random selling sites from trusted sites that previously never allowed pop-ups.
This happens predominantly with Firefox as that is my main browser (with AdBlock Plus) usually after loading a regular site I use and clicking the first link.
I also use two other browsers Chrome (with AdBlock Plus) and less ocassionally Opera (with no add-ons).
Internet Explorer has remained largely unused though it is now also rendered unusable by some download pop-up that locks into a cyclical event until I kill it via task manager.
My System:
I run an Acer Aspire with Windows 7 64-bit OS set to auto-update with the following protection:
Windows Firewall
Microsoft Security Essentials
MalwareBytes Anti-Malware
Spybot Search & Destroy
Steps Taken so far:
I regularly run the above programs which recently identified and removed several High/Severe risks (such as Win32/InstallMonster and Win32/Holleycann.A) as well as the plethora of less severe trackers and PUPs that seem to populate Spybot and CCleaner scans daily.
Following the advice found on this site, I've also run a complete system backup after uninstalling unused programs and clearing caches/temp folders etc.
Even after running these scans and them showing "clear", this annoying and persistent pop-up/redirection occurs without fail after first start of the computer, loading Firefox, a trusted site and clicking the first link (unread forum posts). Despi... Read more

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

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:

About a week ago, IE6 has started putting the following address in the Trusted Sites Zone: https://*.
I have no idea what this address refers to as it's not even normal form. I did not add it myself, and everytime I go to delete it, it comes right back the second I open the sites window back up. I'm not sure why this is happening. I'm not running any personal firewall software. The only thing I can think of is that maybe one of the IE6 Windows Update files put this in there. But since this address has been being put in there, it's been messing up my browsing. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi justind

If you post your startup list we may be able to spot something

Please post your startup list by doing the following :-

Please go here and download startuplist 1.52 :-


Download to any folder or your desktop
Unzip the zipfile
Double click the exe file
go to Edit - select all - copy - and paste the results in a new post here

Post your startup list first - then we will probably ask you to d'load and run spybot
This could be a spyware\foistware\malware\adware problem

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]
