SYMPTOMS

When you use Group Policy or the Microsoft Internet Explorer Administration Kit (IEAK) to import advanced privacy settings and per-site privacy actions, these settings may not be imported into your customized IEAK build.

CAUSE

This problem may occur because there is a coding error. As a result, the following registry keys are not imported into the Seczones.inf file:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\P3P\


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