MS Baseline Security Analyzer reports an IE zone security error ("Some or all of the user settings for the following zones are below the recommended level") for user S-1-5-21-1182415113-829243737-1235820382-18050 on my Windows 2000 desktop. The zone is Restricted Sites. The user is not valid, any ideas where it came from / how to fix? Thanks.

This looks like a SID for an account that was probably deleted.  If the user had set preferences in IE and then had their account deleted it could leave settings behind in a profile that MBSA could pick up on.

Take a look in the 'Documents and Settings' directory and see if there is a profile for a non-existant user laying around.  If so, delete it and see if that resolves your issue.
