JSI Tip 9705. Windows Server 2003 does NOT allow you to add Web sites to a security zone?

When you use a new account to log onto a Windows Server 2003 using a remote desktop connection, and Internet Explorer is configured to automatically start, you cannot add any Web site to a security zone.

This behavior occurs because the initialization processes that run the first time you logon locally are not completed when your first logon uses a remote desktop connection.

To resolve this problem:

1. Log onto the Windows Server 2003 locally.

2. Open a CMD.EXE window.

3. Type ie4uinit.exe and press Enter.
