Announcing a major update to the IE security zone analyzer!
IEZoneAnalyzer is a utility for viewing and comparing Internet Explorer security zone settings. It is particularly valuable on systems controlled through Group Policy, on which the standard security settings dialog does not allow viewing of settings. IEZoneAnalyzer version 3 represents a total rewrite, adding a tremendous amount of new functionality compared to earlier versions. Note that IEZoneAnalyzer does not require administrative rights. It also does not have an installer – just run the utility directly. IEZoneAnalyzer does require.NET Framework 3.5.
Key features of IEZoneAnalyzer:
The download includes the program, sample files captured from various fresh systems with default settings, and extensive documentation. [Update, 22 Sept 2011: an updated version of IEZoneAnalyzer can be found here.]
