Can anyone tell me the file name and where it is located containing the Managed Web Sites list (for blocking or allowing specific sites for cookies) so I can back it up and reload it.

Do you mean the sites you put in places like TRUSTED DOMAINS, under security?

Those are stored in the registry, in a key called

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap

It lists the domain, and then there is a hexcode that determines if it is safe (ends in 02) or not trusted (ends in 04)

Or am I misunderstanding you?

Not Trusted Domains - I mean in Internet Options>Privacy Tab>Sites Button -

"Per Site Privacy Actions

Managed Sites
You can specify which websites are always or never allowed to use cookies, regardless of their privacy policy.

Managed Web Sites:
Domain -------------- Setting (Always Allow or Always Block)"


I know that some freeware antispyware preloads this information, so I am assuming that it resides in a file that can be backed up and replaced. Should it also reside in the Registry, it could be backed up and reloaded as well - no?

pretty sure they're in the same general area...

You might try start > run
regedit
enter

navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings
right click, export to file, name it
IEsettings.reg

Copy that file to another machine,
open regedit there
select same key, export as temp.reg

THEN
double click the IEsettings.reg and say yes to merge into registry

See if it duplicates
If so, good
To return the second machine to normal, delet the key, then doule click temp.reg and merge

MAKE SURE BOTH MACHINES HAVE THE SAME VERSION OF IE, otherwise, it should be a harmless merger

I will try your suggestion, but it stills seems like this should be in a file due to it's potential size. My list is currently around 500 entries - and as far as I know there is no limit. Is there anyway to check on this?

Thank you for your help.

My list is also 500 entries and I see 500 registry entries.

Why do you assume it is a file....IE would be able to retrieve this info much more quickly from the registry then a file

You are correct. I found them at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Internet Settings\P3P\History. Can I just save or export the P3P folder and then import that folder? If so, please give me the instructions.

Thank you gerryf. I used your previous instructions and applied them to exporting P3P.reg, backed up the other entire registry plus temp.reg of the other P3P folder and then imported P3P.reg. It worked swell - what a slick deal that was - saved me 3 hours of copy and paste - thank you again!
