When you access a Web site that is in your Restricted sites zone, the site may not be restricted. For example, the status bar may not display the Restricted Sites icon, and the site may use Internet or Local Intranet zone security settings instead of your Restricted Sites zone security settings.
This problem can occur if you add a trailing space to the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) when you add the Web site in the Restricted Sites Zone dialog box.
To resolve the problem, remove the URL for the affected Web site from your Restricted Sites zone and add it back without any trailing spaces. To do so, follow the appropriate steps:
Internet Explorer 4
Internet Explorer 5
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
