    Ok, I finally got off my bum and finished this. added *. to all but complete links

    Separated any links that I thought one might not wish to restrict and put them under perhaps to restrict.

    Donít think I broke any links kept an eye out for complete links i.e. ad.blah.com
    But of course can't be sure. :)

    If anyone knows any more just do a find on the list to see if it is in there if not, I'll be happy to add it, or someone else can. :D

    Or in there any site that people should not be restricted, dito.

    Also, you don't need to worry about viruses, because I did all this on a Mac. :D

    Done! - Added.

    I also added cexx.org.
    Sorry Mr. C I remember doing a search when you talked about it, and I could of sworn it was in there. Just did a second search and it wasn't so I now added it.

    Also added *.xupiter.com even though it's already in your list, just to make it more likely that it will be blocked. Plus doesn't having a site on your block list twice make you twice as secure? :p

    Sorry to have failed you Mr. C

    No strangle strangle, o'ta? :D

    Also, if anyone else has a web page they think should be added let me know. But do me a favor and do a search on the uploaded list to make sure it's not already there.
    Someday I would like to become knowledgeable so that I could do penance for all the stupid questions I have and have yet to ask.

    *wildcards too!! :laugh: Only kidding,
    this was rhetorical question/lame attempt at humor ONLY

    On the serious tip though, Negomike, congrats on one of the few contructive jetlag reply's/post to a dying yet informatively useful thread that i have yet too see. : peace2:

    Well it's gone off topic like most others but at least it's constructive. :devil:

    Actually if you add a domain to a zone which already exists in that or another zone, you should get a message box telling you so.

    Not uncommon for those banner-ad type domains to use 3 or more variations of thier domain, tricky devils that they are and all.
    Being as I only work within 2 zones, and I'm certain it isn't on the "short list" (Trusted Sites) - if it says it already exists in a zone, then we can be certain which one it's in:thumb:

    I,too , like you, am very festidious about i/o data access

    alarmed by/fight with on constant vigle. That's why i prefer Win98se...............inspite of owning all MS/OS.....incl. 3.1(still luv
    playing those old early dos games. :laugh: :wave:

    Thanks for the tip TwizlZone:thumb:
    Added *.trafficswarm.com - and for good measure, *.trafficswarm.net. Can't be too careful you know:D
    If you have any info as to other variations those folks use, please pass it on.

    FYI;
    Anyone who is not aware of it, this Security Zone info can be easily backed up --- no point in recreating the wheel in the event of a reinstall.

    The list of sites added to the zones is at;

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains

    The settings for the security zones is at;
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Internet Settings\Zones

    The only 1 to really be concerned with is "4" though it is just as easy to back them all up at once. 4 contains the settings for "Restricted sites".


    Just export thoses as a .reg and put them in a safe partition or on floppy to be added with ease.

    After you've got Windows and drivers all set, just right click on those files and choose "Merge", easy peasy

    I also like to throw the .org's in as well as a few have used those before. ;)

    I must say though that that trafficswarm.com must have been a real nasty as each time that I checked someone's handy work Pow went down the gurglar but the firewall was closin' the window down before the AV could analyse the exact threat posed. Damn irritatin' havin' to reset POW! again to access the net though.
