Manage Internet Explorer's Restricted Sites using ZonedOut
Funkytoad.com released ZonedOut - 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.
There are more useful functions in ZonedOut that I'm sure user's of IE-SPYAD or other program that adds restricted sites will enjoy. Get it.. it's free from Funkytoad.com.
Funkytoad.com authored Hoster and IniBeast. Hoster is another utility to manage your HOST file while IniBeast is ini file tweaker.
Disclosure: I admit, I'm involved in the making of ZonedOut. No, I don't know programming. It's only my idea. I've been looking for such utility to manage restricted sites ... easier and I gave up looking for it because there is nada (as per Google OK? ;) ). I contacted Todd and beg :-D to “please create a restricted site manager utility“. Todd is one of administrator over in Gladiator Security Forums (visit us there!..). Thanks Todd for granting my request. Wait for my next request :-P
