Internet Explorer 7 zones setting refresh

I installed IE7 on few machines. After IE7 is successfully installed, rebooted the machine and trying to login using my domain account. Since mine is a roaming profile, H: drive is getting mapped to some network path. Now the issue is, when ever I open any shortcut from quick launch, I get "Open file - security warning" message asking for "do you want to open this file?". Every time I have to click on "open" button to open the shortcut.

After doing some research on this issue, I observed that H:\ drive network path((server.domain.com) is getting treated as Internet Zone instead of local Intranet zone. I see that network path (*.domain.com) is already added to the local intranet zone list.

Issue is getting fixed if I add any web site to the local intranet zone from GUI (tools -> internet options -> local intranet zone). Clicking on ok button after adding a website in IE7 is doing some back ground refresh of the settings and "*.domain.com" setting is coming into effect. From command prompt, I tried adding a web site to the local intranet zone but the issue is not getting fixed. IE zone settings are getting refreshed only when we modify zone settings from GUI. Is there a way to programmatically do Internet explorer zone settings refresh?

I fixed the issue. Network drives are getting mapped before *.domain.com is added to the intranet zones list.
