    I am trying to add a site to Tools/InternetOptions/Security/Restricted sites
    but I get a box coming up saying that 'the site I specified already exists
    in another zone. To remove it from that zne before etc'

    What zone can that be? Could it be the Hosts file?

    Local Internet > Sites
    and
    Trusted Sites > Sites
    see if it's there

    What other security zones are listed there? Look in those.

    > Could it be the Hosts file?


    That file has nothing to do with the security zones. It doesn't even have
    to do with security (for its original intent and how it is used but can
    effect indirect security measures). See:

    Internet, Local Intranet, Trusted?

    I think I got it. Spyware Blaster places a load of sites in the registry
    under ....ZoneMap.

    This one was there. What I can't understand is how a page that is there
    (intended to be blocked: (4)) still opens, even though I redirect it to
    127.0.0.0 through the Hosts file. meaning that t opens blank.

    Still, I would expect that items in the 'Restricted sites' did not open at
    all.

    It is SBs way to decide for you what sites are restricted or not.
    Similar to Spybot meddling with the hosts file. I guess some of their
    ideas are okay, but it is still meddling.

    Just because a site is in the IE restricted zone(4), doesn't mean it
    is blocked or you can't go there.

    MS says:

    Restricted sites:

    The level of security set for Restricted sites is applied to sites
    that might potentially damage your computer or your information.
    Adding sites to the Restricted zone does not block them, but it
    prevents them from using scripting or any active content. The security
    level for Restricted sites is set to High and can't be changed.

    Placing a domain or website in Restricted Sites zone does NOT make such
    webpages inaccessible.
