How did I add a 'Trusted Site' when the security tab is not displayed

We have a user who on their W2K machine has a trusted site, that needs to be transferred to their new Win XP build with IE6-SP2. The security tab in Internet Options is disabled so we're unable to do it that way.

If I run IE as administrator on the old machine I can't see the site listed under trusted sites, so am wondering how this was set originally.

it3rdlinesupport--My first reaction is that malware may have installed on the PC.
Scan with antivirus and antispyware programs using the latest reference definitions.
If this PC is in a business environment, the Security may have been disable by a Group Policy.

Even though an old reference it still may help.
