Windows 7: Trusted sites greyed out

04 Dec 2013   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
Trusted sites greyed out

I have tried everything I can see on the forums to get acces to the trusted sites list to add another site.
The HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings only has a: Default REG-SZ Value not set, nothing else in that field. I obviously have admin rights and even started IE9 as admin. I used Local Group Policy Editor to check User config/Windows settings/Internet explorer Maintenance/Security and ensured that Do not customize ... is ticked. All to no avail.
Anybody can help with this, I would really appreciate. I cannot log on to my bank any more, as they have changed sites.
