Cannot add trusted sites.

IE7 on Windows Server 2003.



I cannot add sites to 'Trusted Sites'. IE options, security, Trusted Sites,
Sites.



Whether I do it from a webpage, prepopulating the 'add this website to the
zone', or from control panel and manually enter an address I get 'There was
an unexpected error with your zone settings. Unable to add this site.'

Re: Cannot add trusted sites.

1. Does this behavior persist if you start IE7 in No Add-ons mode?

To start IE7 in No Add-ons mode:

Right-click on the blue IE desktop icon and select Start without Add-ons; or

Start > (All) Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer (No
add-ons).

2. Does the problem persist if you Reset IE7 Settings (RIES)?
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923737 <= Read before using!

3. If you uninstall (a) IE7 (which automatically returns you to IE6), (b)
all toolbars and (c) all third-party Windows Themes (including Window
Blinds) and don't reinstall IE7, does this behavior persist?

Re: Cannot add trusted sites.

Thank you, RIES appears to have fixed the problem.

Re: Cannot add trusted sites.

YW. Now, why did you need to use RIES?

Re: Cannot add trusted sites.

clutching at straws I might suggest my install process, this was a clean
install.

Possibly pertinent comments:
Clean install of Windows Server 2003 SP1 into a workgroup as standalone
server.
IE Enhanced Security was removed before joining domain.
IE6 was used was to join the SBS 2003 SP1 domain via
http://SBS/connectcomputer.
Immediately the machine updates came under control of WSUS due to GP.
AU Client offered a fistload of updates, including IE7. Others were
deselected, only IE 7 was applied. I'm thinking that IE7 was not offered up
in the first batch of updates from WSUS. Memory suggests there were a number
of patches offered soon after joining the domain, these were applied and IE7
(with others) was offered soon after restart.
Office 2007 was installed prior to IE7 but after the 1st round of updates
(I'm pretty sure).
All remaining updates were installed.

There's yet very little installed on her but VMWare Server (her primary
task) and the 'console' part, including dependencies (MMC3 and Report
Viewer), of WSUS3 so that I can control WSUS on the SBS from here.

In oder to access certain components of SBS RWW on customer systems I need
to add them to trusted sites, it was the first attempt to do so which
resulted in the error.

Notice any 'trigger' conditions?

Re: Cannot add trusted sites.

Was any/all real-time protection (from, e.g., anti-virus, firewall, and/or
anti-spyware/security apps) disabled before IE7 was installed?
