Admin cannot change "trusted sites" membership RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm in 2012r2. I've now lost two hours trying to something that should have taken two seconds. I need to add a page as a trusted site. I am logged in as  Admin on a Remote Desktop server bound to a domain controller. There's a site listed in there that I added before but some recent update must have turned off the ability. It's grayed out. The security tab says "Some settings are managed by your sysystem administrator." Well, I AM the System Administrator!!!

    I saw posts about using gpedit to unlock it, but where they say to go (user configuration > Administrative templates > Windows Components/Internet Explorer/Internet Control Panel/Security Page) it says "Policy definitions (ADMX files) retrieved from the local computer." Fine, so  I go to local security policy but there doesn't seem to be a corresponding setting.

    I even looked upon the DC.

    I am the admin. I am  the ONLY admin. I should be  able  to do EVERYTHING. How do I enable this dialog?
