ZonedOut

Need a way to Manage Internet Explorer's Restricted Sites?

ZonedOut is a utility that will allow you manage Internet Explorer's restricted sites.

With ZonedOut, you can Add, Delete, Import, Export, Build a WhiteList and More!

Why ZonedOut is useful?

If you are using any program (e.g. SpywareBlaster, Spybot Search & Destroy) or file (e.g. IE-SPYAD) that add list of bad sites in Internet Explorer's restricted zone, you will find ZonedOut useful! There are times we want to whitelist a site but the Internet Explorer's restricted sites' manager do not have ?search utility?. You will find yourself scrolling or mess with Windows Registry Editor or use notepad to manually edit out what you don't want to be in restricted sites. With ZonedOut's search function, you'll just search for the URL and viola, you can delete it using ZonedOut or add it in whitelist. The whitelist editor will keep the URL for you. The next time a new definition or updated restricted sites is released, you don't need to do it all over again. It can be imported as a complete list or parsed against your whitelist.

"In the next few days E. Howes Author of IE-Spyad[/b] will be fashioning a fspecifically for importing with ZonedOut.&quoGeneral Usage Notes:[/b]

-Put ZonedOut.exe in its own directory. There is no installation. Simply delete the directory to "uninstall&quoMore Info & Download: ZonedOut 1.0

Hi All:

Please note that you cannot use ZonedOut with the current version of IE-SPYAD, because ZonedOut requires a plain text domains list -- IE-SPYAD is currently formatted as a Registry file.

Also, please do not try to use ZonedOut with the plain text AGNIS Sites list that's available from the same download page. Although the AGNIS Sites list is a plain text domains list, a number of the CoolWebSearch IP address ranges are not compatible with ZonedOut as presently formatted. If you uninstall your standard IE-SPYAD list and install the AGNIS Sites list with ZonedOut, you will vastly increase your exposure to CoolWebSearch exploits.

I will be building a plain text domains list that is compatible with ZonedOut in the next day or so. Please wait until that list has been released.

Best,

Eric L. Howes

ZonedOut 1.1 Released

Sept. 6, 2005

Change Log:

Version 1.1 9-6-05

  • Added- option to report failures on import.
  • Changed- exporting to a more reliable import friendly format.
  • Optimized- numerous items

Important Note:

New in Version 1.1 - is the ability to check for failures when importing Restricted Sites from a file. There are several reasons for failures and most of them are strange anomalies within the Internet Explorer interface which ZonedOut utilizes for Adding and Removing Restricted Sites. Optionally - ZonedOut will give you a list of Sites that failed to Import, and recommend that you add those sites to your computers "hosts" file for protection

Download: ZonedOut 1.1
