can group policy uncheck "require server verifcation" checkbox in trusted sites?

In IE7 > Internet Options > Security tab > Trusted Sites > Sites button, can group policy uncheck the "require server verification" checkbox?  Because that policy is configured, it is grayed out and cannot be unchecked.  I need to uncheck it!

Yes it can....
    configure the internet options on the domain controller the way you want them  then in Group Policy editer  
    under User Configuration > Internet Explorer Maintainance > Security   open the Security zone and contect raiting the import settings....   wait the 15 min for the group policy to fully take effect... reboot the client pc's and see if that works......

  Good Luck....

but where is the specific setting for that checkbox I mention above?  That is precisly what I'm looking for.
their is no setting.... you set the server up they way you want it and check the box to import the settings.....  it will import them from the server.  you can access the box in question on the server correct ???

sorry, gotcha.  I did that, and it seems to have worked.  I wish there was a place to configure that setting manually, however, in GP.  There is a setting for everything else; why not that?
 i dont know but i do agree.....  ask Micro$oft
Yes you can.

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\2\Flags

A decimal value of 71 is checked.
A decimal value of 67 is unchecked.
Thank you NewsInternationalLtd for the tip! That is precisely the registry key I needed to know about. I wrote a VBScript to change that key and a few other custom IE settings my client needs for a certain website. All works well.
