IE's Trusted, Restricted, Local Zones

When you add sites to the Trusted, Restricted or Local Intranet zones, they are stored in the registry at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\​Microsoft\​Windows\​CurrentVersion\​Internet Settings\​ZoneMap. Each site has is represented by a key and the DWORD indicated which zone the site is in:

  • DWORD value of 1 = Local Intranet
  • DWORD value of 2 = Trusted
  • DWORD value of 3 = Internet
  • DWORD value of 4 = Restricted
  • The DWORD values are cross-referenced with the keys at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\​Software\​Microsoft\​Windows\​CurrentVersion\​Internet Settings\​Zones (also found in ..Lockdown_Zones)

    Export the key to save the zonemap information before reformatting or to move it to a new machine.
