Check the trusted site and activeX approval site list in IE
After adding the trusted site and activex approval list through GPO, we have to check from client system that the newly added sites are updated or not, normally it take some time to replicate if you have more complicated AD environment.
We can use the below commands to confirm that the newly added sites and updated on the client system.
Below command will list the entire trusted site
reg Query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMapKey"
Below command will list the entire activex approval site
reg Query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\AxInstaller\ApprovedActiveXInstallSites"
reg Query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ApprovedActiveXInstallSites"
Below command will find only the require site (find for a single site)
You can pipe the registry query output to find command, like below
reg Query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMapKey" | find /N "site name"
Replace the site name with the above command
To Query the proxy settings from IE
reg query “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings” /v AutoConfigURL
