How can I create a 5th security zone in Internet Explorer?

A. By default Internet Explorer has 4 security zones however its possible to add a 5th by directly editing the registry. If you copy the following into 5th.reg then double click the fifth zone will be created:

REGEDIT4<br><br>
\[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\5\]<br>
@=""<br>
"DisplayName"="Internet with Cookies"<br>
"Description"="This zone contains all Web sites you haven't placed in other zones"<br>
"Icon"="inetcpl.cpl#001313"<br>
"CurrentLevel"=dword:00000000<br>
"MinLevel"=dword:00011000<br>
"RecommendedLevel"=dword:00011000<br>
"Flags"=dword:00000003<br>
"1001"=dword:00000001<br>
"1004"=dword:00000003<br>
"1200"=dword:00000000<br>
"1201"=dword:00000003<br>
"1400"=dword:00000000<br>
"1402"=dword:00000000<br>
"1405"=dword:00000000<br>
