    IE Restricted Sites

    In IE one can go to tools, options, security and will find icons for different types of sites for which you can set security levels. I noticed that one has to manually add your own "restricted sites." Is there a commonly understood list of sites that should be listed as "restricted?" Or does each individual user have to figure this out him/her self? What sites do you include?

    Re: IE Restricted Sites

    I have set Restricted Sites to basically shut down all interactivity. I put advertisers in this list, such as DoubleClick. Their banners then don't bother me with cookies or Java applets. I've been building this list gradually, and an excerpt is attached. You might be able to import this directly into your registry, but I don't recommend it, just in case you already have these domains listed in some other zone.

    To clarify, when you enter the domains in IE, they look like this:

    Re: IE Restricted Sites

    That's pretty much the most useful tip I've seen here! Cheers! <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    I showed this to another guy at work and he was nearly drooling in delight as I ran through a few of the worst cookie-dropping sites I know and then found that no unwanted cookies had been added. I've even gone so far as to reset all the different security zone settings to their defaults, just to get a better idea of just how effective this method can be without having to customize each setting.
