Unblock Websites in Internet Explorer
By Andrew Schrader
Internet Explorer automatically assigns websites to one of four security zones: Internet, Local Intranet, Trusted and Restricted Sites. Each zone uses a security level to determine what content is acceptable and what should be blocked. If you changed your privacy and security settings to block websites or certain types of content, you must remove them from the Restricted security zone. You may also reset or customize security zone settings.
Open Internet Explorer. Click the "Tools" menu option at the top of the Internet Explorer window and select "Internet Options."
Click the "Security" tab. Click the "Restricted Sites" security zone option and select "Sites."
Right-click the desired site from the list of restricted sites and click "Delete."
Reset or customize security zone settings by clicking the "Tools" menu option at the top of the Internet Explorer window and selecting "Internet Options." Click the "Security" button. Change settings for any security zone by clicking the security zone icon and adjusting the slider to the desired level. Create your own levels for any zone by clicking the security zone icon and choosing "Custom Level." Reset all security levels to their defaults by clicking the "Reset All Zones to Default Level" option.
